Oscilloscope finds ‘Impact Man’

Indie co. acquires rights to environmental doc

Oscilloscope Laboratories has acquired domestic distribution rights to “No Impact Man,” a feature documentary by Laura Gabbert and Justin Schein about one man’s attempt to eliminate his downtown Manhattan family’s environmental impact.

Set for Sept. 4, the pic’s theatrical release will accompany the national launch of chief subject and author Colin Beavan’s not-for-profit No Impact Project, whose objective is to “encourage citizen engagement in finding solutions to our culture’s environmental and lifestyle crises.”

“It’s the first time I’ve seen an environmentally concerned film with a strong comedic element,” said Oscilloscope chief Adam Yauch. “I still think about it every time I go to the supermarket.”

“No Impact Man” premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January and will appear at Silverdocs and the Los Angeles Film Festival later this month.
