A Simpler Way: Crisis as Opportunity
“A Simpler Way: Crisis as Opportunity” is a feature-length documentary that follows a community in Australia who came together to explore and demonstrate how to live in response to global crises. Throughout the year the group built tiny houses, planted veggie gardens, practiced simple living, and learned to live in community. This film is the first documentary shot by Happen Films and is a product of hours of footage that Jordan Osmond shot during a year-long experiment in simple living.
The film documents the community’s learning process as well as exploring the global issues we’re facing, through interviews with some of today’s most interesting speakers on the subjects, including permaculture co-originator David Holmgren, filmmaker and activist Helena Norberg-Hodge, climate change activist David Spratt, Nicole Foss, Ted Trainer, Graham Turner, and more.
Happen Films makes short films and feature films about planetary regeneration, resilience, permaculture, urban gardening and sustainable living. Find out more about Happen Films:
