Today a couple leave on an adventure. You can follow a Bristol couple as they navigate through a Europe on the brink of bankruptcy. They say
'We explore what living without a functioning economic and political
system is like, meeting compelling characters and relaying the darker
comedic side of collapse.'
A filmmaker is taking a boat around Europe to explore the future.
I’ve been planning a film on the subject of a looming catastrophic
crash in our current way of life for a few years. I’m very interested in
the divide between people who believe this will happen and those who
haven’t really thought about it, and also among those who are physically
attempting to prepare and those who believe but don’t act on it at all.
I was inspired to make this film because of my husband Sam, who has
been looking into Peak Oil issues for some years. For a rundown on Peak
Oil issues and to see what some other people are doing to prepare for
this particular catastrophe, see http://powerswitch.org.uk/forum/
Some friends of mine are more concerned about climate change, others
more preoccupied with pollution, Nuclear war or meltdowns. Others are
expecting sudden devastation from a renegade fragment of the sun or
spinning amorphous superstition around the 2012 deadline.
