Escape from Suburbia: Beyond the American Dream - Michigan Premiere

This April 22, celebrate Earth Day with your friends or community at a free screening of Escape from Suburbia: Beyond the American Dream, the newest documentary by director Gregory Greene (The End of Suburbia).  This is a rare look at this exciting and unique film, made possible by a one-day-only free screening license from the producers.  Normally, a screening of this film costs $300.  Please come to this once only event to learn about positive solutions to peak oil and climate change.

Escape from Suburbia has the power to entertain and empower communities to consider their energy and environmental footprint and look for ways in which we might become more sustainable as a community. Wherever the film is seen, lively
discussions ensue and connections are made between local politicians, environmental businesses and individuals who seek to learn more about energy sustainability.

The film makes its Michigan premiere on the big screen on Tuesday, April 22nd at the Thornapple Township Emergency Services Building at 128 High Street in Middleville.  Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the event begins at 7:00 p.m. A open community discussion immediately follows the film.

RSVP's are greatly appreciated so we can have the proper number of handouts.  To RSVP, please email Aaron Wissner at aaron@localfuture.org, and kindly include "RSVP Escape from Suburbia" in the subject line.
