College to host showing of Hubbard documentary
Monday, November 12, 2012 10:00 AM
The Rivers Institute at Hanover College will have a free screening of a new documentary about artist and author Harlan Hubbard and his wife, Anna, who lived a self-sustaining lifestyle on the Kentucky side of the Ohio River.
The documentary, "Wonder: The Lives of Anna and Harlan Hubbard," is by Morgan Atkinson, a video producer in Louisville.
The screening will be at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 29 at the Center for Fine Arts Recital Hall on the Hanover College campus. There will be a question-and-answer session after the screening.
"Anna and Harlan Hubbard 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," the Rivers Institute said in a press release. "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 Hubbards' astonishing life of freedom and what it says to Americans today."
