Editorial Reviews

Suburbia, and all it promises, has become the American Dream. With brutal honesty and a touch of irony, The End of Suburbia explored the American Way of Life and its prospects as the planet enters the age of Peak Oil. An indie success story winning festival awards and attracting major media attention (The Colbert Report, New York Times), the film brought awareness of Peak Oil to a mainstream audience.

In Escape From Suburbia director Gregory Greene moves us from the realm of theory and despair to the real world, where practical solutions are experienced. We follow the stories of three unique characters struggling to reinvent the American Dream in their own lives. Expert opinion from government and industry is balanced by on-the-street skepticism from an emerging movement of citizen's groups confronting our addiction to oil in extraordinary ways.

The clock is ticking, the time to prepare for the most dramatic shift in modern history is upon us.

Escape From Suburbia is a wake-up call that challenges the illusion of never-ending growth and provides viable alternatives for citizens and communities working at the local level to ensure the survival of a sustainable civilization in the 21st Century, and beyond.
