The full title of this film is “End of Suburbia- Oil Depletion and the Collapse of the American Dream”

This award winning documentary certainly focusses the mind and it is easy to see how it has been  been influential to the Transition Town Movement. Rob Hopkins talks about the film in his book “The Transition Handbook” . TransitionUS cites this film as an important motivator.

If you feel complacent about our endless consumption of oil, watch this film and prepare to wake up! It was made in 2004 and it is interesting to see how the recession/depression that we are entering into now was being predicted in this film.

Here is the promo for the film which will give you a good idea of what it is about and here is the website.

Both the book and the DVD are available from Auckland Library so get them out and get motivated.

If you want to catch up with what some of the commentators from the film are saying more currently here are their websites and blogs.
