The End of Suburbia?

Just caught the end of the review of this on the radio (National Radio – advance to 48 minutes) of THE END OF SUBURBIA which sounded interesting. From the film’s web site

Suburbia, and all it promises, has become the American Dream.

But as we enter the 21st century, serious questions are beginning to emerge about the sustainability of this way of life. With brutal honesty and a touch of irony, The End of Suburbia explores the American Way of Life and its prospects as the planet approaches a critical era, as global demand for fossil fuels begins to outstrip supply. World Oil Peak and the inevitable decline of fossil fuels are upon us now, some scientists and policy makers argue in this documentary.

I see that there’s a public screening next Monday put on by the Green Party here in Auckland (details here).

Does anyone know anything about it?
