59min · Documentary, Adventure, News · 1 January 2012
In times of economic and environmental uncertainty, the American Dream is quickly fading into the background and being replaced by a world of wage slaves with a glib future. People who feel trapped inside a cubicle are asking themselves: '30 years from now, will I regret how I lived my life?' In The Graceful Descent, American journalist, Katie Young's, answer was, 'yes.' After leaving her job, Katie starts a search for a more fulfilling and promising future by traveling to New Zealand to learn about Permaculture. Watch Katie navigate through a foreign country while conflicting with her ideals and American standard of living, trying to combine modern convenience with sustainability. The Graceful Descent shows Permaculture defines the broadly used term, sustainability, without sacrificing creature comforts.
