Is there a simpler, sustainable way to live? How do we make a positive impact on the world around us? Please join us as we explore the extraordinary journey of Anna & Harland Hubbard.
Anna and Harlan lived life as few people in modern times have and in doing so accomplished at least two things that are very rare—contentment and freedom. In a house they built by hand, sustained by food they raised or caught, aided by no electricity or modern “convenience”, the Hubbards, met the world on their own terms and found deep meaning. “Wonder” considers the Hubbard’s astonishing life of freedom and what it says to Americans today.
“Wonder” was written and produced by Louisville, KY-based producer Morgan Atkinson. He has been recognized for his work profiling philosopher/monk Thomas Merton, the writer/social activist John Howard Griffin and many other programs in a career spanning more than 25 years. There will be a live Q&A with Morgan after the premiere.
