VOLUNTARY SIMPLICITY: The Poetic Alternative to Consumer Culture (24 min)
VOLUNTARY SIMPLICITY: The Poetic Alternative to Consumer Culture (24 min) from NO WAY Productions on Vimeo.
VOLUNTARY SIMPLICITY: The Poetic Alternative to Consumer Culture documentary explores the philosophy behind Voluntary Simplicity, what potential or significance it has as a quietly emerging social movement and what its limitations might be. Presented by Samuel Alexander, a part-time lecturer and doctoral student at the University of Melbourne Law School, and the founder of the Life Poet’s Simplicity Collective (simplicitycollective.com ). Living simply and happily in a small hut that he built himself using mostly abandoned materials, he spends his time quietly planning, with youthful ambition, the non-violent erasure of consumer culture.
“Live simply, so others may simply live.”(Gandhi)
Directed & produced by Tanja Capic & Amir Dervic from NO WAY Productions (myspace.com/NoWayPro ). Original music score written, composed & produced by Samuel Alexander & Andy Gibson (see the soundtrack clip AFFLUENZA: vimeo.com/ 5360228 ).
