Off the Grid

Off the Grid

While the US suffers a severe recession, some Americans are taking command of the situation by creating independent local economies. 

A film about the need to create new local communities. One such community is searching for an answer to life after peak oil, and is preparing for the coming climate change. Another issued its own currency to support the local economy. A third is based strongly on the idea of individual freedom minimising the influence of local government. OFF THE GRID challenges today's economic system - and presents a number of alternatives.
