Off the Grid is a documentary about an oddball community

June 2007

Off the Grid is a documentary about an oddball community:

Twenty-Five miles from town, a million miles from mainstream society, a loose-knit community of radicals live in the desert, struggling to survive with little food, less water and no electricity, as they cling to their unique vision of the American dream

There's more about them in Desert Autonomous Zone:

400 misfits … have built a community where no one cares if you smoke pot, fire your rifle all day, let your kids drive your car, or walk around naked in the desert heat. It's a landscape of beat-up old trailers, shacks jerry-rigged from recycled materials, solar panels, little farms, greenhouses, and at least one tipi.

What A Way To Go is a documentary on the coming crash of civilisation. From the site:

A middle class white guy comes to grips with Peak Oil, Climate Change, Mass Extinction, Population Overshoot and the demise of the American Lifestyle.

It features interviews with, among others, Ran Prieur and Daniel Quinn.
