The New Film by Gregory Greene, Director of The End of Suburbia
World Premiere! Two Nights Only in Calgary

The End of Suburbia, Gregory Greene’s 2004 film, was the first to detail the dynamics of peak oil and the need for relocalization. The End of Suburbia became an independent success, winning film festival awards, returning generous revenue for its producer, and capturing attention from such media as Oprah, The Colbert Report, The New York Times, the Globe and Mail and the Toronto Star.
In Escape from Suburbia we meet three characters whose very different lives converge on a single note: creating a more sustainable future for their families and communities as Hummer fever begins to power down. Corporate and government solutions juxtapose what history and
common sense tell us is beginning to happen: that we as a civilization are about to face one of the most significant events in human history, the overhaul of a lifestyle which is completely
predicated on cheap and abundant oil.
