5/18/2005: Note from Brauer
This feature length film is available for your group as a fundraiser or to help generate awareness on how people are impacted by sprawl. The film is not preachy, but instead is warm and realistic, and in many places funny. The film's serious and important story is built as entertainment, using great actors and scenics. It has screened for many groups already and has met with applause every time. Although we eventually plan to have it available on home video, use of it publicly will remain licensed. Because of high production costs, we have established a nominal charge for this type of use. We want your group to benefit from our film and encourage you to contact us. Please email Rich Brauer at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info and references.
