Feature Documentary
5 Euro
Saturday May 26th 1:00PM

A 60-year-old man, still dreaming of paradise, shuts himself away from civilization in the mountains to try living self sufficiently and to see what secrets underlie solitude. Having trouble finding a truly uninhabited place Lalo has to keep dealing with human contact, which confronts his utopia. He begins to question the viability of his undertaking, and then to experience how he really feels when he is finally left alone for a long period of time.

This life would be a dream for my father who often fantasized to live off the grid in his "paradise" in Southern New Mexico.  While I find this Thoreau inspired lifestyle attractive, is living off the grid possible for everyone?  Is there a way to step back a bit from the consumer capitalistic "Minotaur" as Yanis Varoufakis calls it?  Or does one have to go completely off the grid and live the life of a hermit?  This off the grid movement is gaining momentum around the globe and I think there should be a place for those who want to live in harmony with nature without urban ills encroaching.  But I also think we can live in the 21st Century and NOT have to live in a  tent...which is why I am often cynical towards "technological progress"...with all of our knowledge we can't do 100% sustainability?
