An Invitation from Quiet Communities
Save the Date • April 24 – 30

Join us starting on International Noise Awareness Day for the online U.S. premiere of The Quietest Year! This documentary film sounds the alarm about noise as a major public health problem. Set in Vermont during the pandemic, the film documents the adverse impacts of noise ‒ from roosters to leaf blowers to military jets ‒ on local residents. It is a microcosm of what is happening around the country. Thanks to award-winning documentary filmmaker Karen Akins for the opportunity to premiere this film nationally.


  • The film will be available on demand from April 24-April 30
  • The screening will be free for QC members and $15 for nonmembers.
  • On April 30 at 4pm EDT, we will host a panel discussion with Karen and scientific and medical experts.

Stay tuned, registration details coming soon! ❖
