Seeking the Good Life in America: Alternative Ways to Live Sustainably (2011) ($2)

0.0 ·

Join Joy on her journey to visit intentional communities as she searches for a place to call home.

Follow along on a road trip with her for a personal glimpse into her adventure visiting three well-established Virginia based intentional communities: Acorn, Twin Oaks, and Light Morning.

Seeking the Good Life in America is a personal and accessible story, without preaching, prescribing, or over analyzing. Witness early explorations stepping out of more mainstream life and into alternative cultures, and see how one can be uniquely nurtured or challenged by each community.

Films For Action is a digital library for people who want to change the world.


Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential a healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Today, with the help of our members (who can add content directly to our site), we've curated over 5,000 of the best documentaries, short films, and videos that can be watched for free online plus several dozen pay-per-view documentaries, sorted into 34 subjects related to changing the world.

And, since there's still so much to learn about that isn't featured in a film, we've also curated over 4,000 articles.
