No Impact Man: The Documentary (2009)

A small film crew recorded an experiment that a family undertook in downtown NYC of which the father wrote a book called "No Impact Man." The experiment involved trying to bring their energy consumption down to zero (no electricity, no travel, no purchasing of goods that had to be transported from afar, no plastic, etc.).

The film is a fascinating study of what it would be like to live a hundred years ago and also the benefits of doing so. It is not meant to be a call to live this way completely, but to reduce consumption gradually individually and as a society.
