Peace Out (2011)
User ReviewsReview this title
Peace Out tells a regional story about a remote area of North America, but it's implications are far-reaching. The film is rich in interviews with well-respected experts in the fields of energy and ecology. It is an absolute must-see for everyone who isn't a card-carrying member of the Flat Earth Society. Watch it with friends, because you are going to need to go out for a drink and talk about it afterwards.
This film is one of many out there that try to help us newbies understand how our seemingly insignificant activities can have a effect on our lives and those around us. We need to work on the demand side of the energy equation, rather than take the easy way out and keep increasing the supply.
I don't have anything else to say but that you see the film its important to everyone.
This movie really makes once think about the energy consumptive lifestyle that we live. And if we are truly able to save the planet for our children and grandchildren we have to take the responsibility for our actions now and not at some later date in the future. It all comes down to the will of the people and this is my one small way to make a difference (in addition to my ongoing commitment to reduce my energy consumption!).
I wish more people would be able to see this movie as it is currently only available through film festivals.
Thanks for creating such an even balanced and thought provoking movie!
We are as guilty as industry about wasting electricity so let's get on with doing our part. Peace Out doesn't do any blaming, just makes a person think about what is happening to our world and what we are going to leave behind to our kids and grandkids to we don't act soon.
I love it when the closing words of the documentary "are our kids going to hate us for doing this" and Charles answer is "ya, they are" - and I believe they are too.
This documentary should be shown in all schools, universities, organizations that care about the world we live in.
A film like this is needed to be seen by many because of what the implications are and effects that will happen to this area in the coming years.
Energy, profits, people and the environment, how will this all play out? Watch the film to get started.
It was truly engaged, beautiful visually, sounded great.
The film in my humble ordinary viewer's opinion went beyond and above the clichéd questions such as who is guilty for our high energy consumption and damages to the environment - the wealthy, the ruling, the professional, the ordinary... It rather acknowledges our desire to live a certain life style we do enjoy and we do not want to easily give up. It begs for right and sustainable solutions.
It is thought provoking and informative. Beautiful in every sense.
