The Hubbards lived as few have since Thoreau and in doing so discovered two rare gifts--freedom and contentment. See and feel how!
The original funding goal has been met and I am grateful for those supporters who made this possible.The funds will be used to help cover talent fees, stock footage costs and studio charges. These expenses are ongoing (and rising) so please know that additional funding will be put to good use. Thank you.
Anna and Harlan Hubbard lived life as few people in modern times have and in doing so discovered at least two very rare gifts—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.
Who hasn’t thought “there must be a saner way to live”? The Hubbard’s found their way and this one hour documentary brings to life the adventure of it all.
“Wonder” is being 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.
Much of the narrative for “Wonder” will come from the Hubbard’s journals. Their thoughts will be complemented by excerpts from Wendell Berry’s book on their lives. Mr. Berry, the noted Kentucky writer, has agreed to voice his work. Actor/musician Will Oldham will be the voice of Harlan. Actress and teacher Katie Blackerby will provide the voice of Anna. Musician/composer Ben Sollee will score the documentary.
