Sprawling from Grace: The Consequences of Suburbanization

 Sprawling from Grace: The Consequences of Suburbanization

A documentary feature film about the unintended consequences of suburban sprawl. It illustrates the importance of altering the course of how we develop our nation's cities.

It communicates the dangers of continuing to invest in the inefficient horizontal growth patterns of suburban communities, and details how they threaten to bankrupt the remaining wealth of our nation.It explores how the depletion of fossil fuels will impact this living arrangement, and investigates the viability of alternative energies that are currently available.

This film sounds the alarm that the cheap fossil-fuel-dependent suburban American way of life is not just at risk. It is in peril!.
