“YERT Blockbuster” Featured on HuffingtonPost.com

Dear YERTians,

We recently caught up with Jeff Biggers and he wrote a great interview about the YERT film and project to the Huffington Post! You can check out the article here:

And a little snippet or two from the article:

Years in the making, YERT is a hilarious, powerful and often poignant chronicle of the year-long journey of three filmmakers, engineers and acclaimed Off Broadway performers — Julie Dingman Evans, Mark Dixon and Ben Evans — to explore breakthrough approaches, from the bizarre to the mind-blowing, for environmental sustainability in all 50 states.

BEN: It’s really a roadmap past clean energy toward LOW energy…and a sustainable, sane civilization based on how natural systems work. Clean energy is critically important, but it needs to take place in the context of powering down and maturing out of our extractive relationship with the planet into a mutually beneficial regenerative, restorative one. Ultimately, it’s about stopping deficit spending… of all kinds.

Please forward as much as you’re able– we need to get the word out about this film!

Peace,
Ben, Mark, and Julie
