Subtitled "Oil Depletion and the Collapse of the American Dream", this intellectually ambitious archival-footage essay offers a comprehensive forecast of the bleak future predicted by the Peak Oil hypothesis. With diminishing petroleum supplies, Post-War plans for sprawling communities linked to the cities by car-coursed freeways can now be more clearly seen as logical cul-de-sacs. This thoroughly researched Canadian doc enriches the argument through interviews, industrial footage, and a well-chosen dose of irony. Opening the program is Heather Roger’s "The Hidden Life of Garbage" (soon to be published in book form), a bracing 20-min. inquiry into the forgotten fate of Everyman’s trash. Bicyclists get free popcorn!
