American Makeover – Film Screening October 28

On Wednesday, Oct. 28, at 7:00 p.m., CNU Utah and Impact Hub Salt Lake will host aamerican-makeover thumbnail special screening of American Makeover: The Movie, a recent film based on the successful American Makeover television series. The screening will be held at Impact Hub, located at 150 S. State on the first floor. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m.

About the film:

Sprawl is devouring farmland and destroying wildlife habitat. It traps us in cars and makes us lazy. Today, the average American spends about three hours per day driving—three hours stuck in traffic, emitting carbon, burning oil, wasting time. The harmful effects of sprawl are well chronicled in recent news stories, books, and documentaries. But what is the alternative?

The film follows the story of four American suburban cities, and chronicles their efforts to reinvent and change themselves to embrace new urban forms. The film received great reviews at the New Urban Film Festival last week in Los Angeles. This is the first time the film will be shown in Utah.
