Denver (PRWEB) September 18, 2008
EMotion Pictures Productions, LLC announces the release of its current documentary film Sprawling From Grace; Driven To Madness available for purchase in DVD format.
"At a time when people are looking at alternative energy sources for our current oil dependency, we're excited to release this film as a way of showcasing the problems created by suburban sprawl," stated David M. Edwards, producer and director of Sprawling From Grace. "It details the difficulties and dangers we face from an aging transportation infrastructure, and brings attention to the problem of peak oil and how it relates to the current oil crisis."
This film features former President Bill Clinton; former Governor of Massachusetts Michael Dukakis; author of The Long Emergency, James Howard Kunstler; and Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper. It explores how our nation is responding to the growing concerns of peak oil and the looming oil crises, and investigates the ability of alternative energy to replace petroleum. The film reveals the relationship between transportation and development, and advocates for change in the way in which we build our cities.
"In the future, we will see the reintroduction of public transportation and transit in order to guide sensible, sustainable urban development," stated Edwards. "We must abandon the strategy of treating the symptoms, and look for a sustainable cure."
The oil crisis is the most important problem facing Americans today. The economy, the war in Iraq, national security; all the big issues of today have strong roots in the oil crisis. Oil prices are spiraling out of control. Our country's economic structure is based on cheap energy. Without cheap transportation fuels, all areas of our economy begin to wobble.
The first order of business must be to curb consumption. As stated in the movie, "Contrary to popular belief, Americans are not addicted to oil. Americans are addicted to unencumbered transportation, and it is this addiction we must address before the American dream, becomes the American nightmare."
Negotiations are still in process with online DVD rental companies such as NetFlix and Blockbuster, and for release in Canada and other locations around the world.
