"Off the Grid: Life On The Mesa" Opens In Select Markets On Feb. 8

Here's the latest news from IndiePix. This looks like a haunting documentary. I can't wait to see it:


NEW YORK, NY – IndiePix announced the theatrical premiere of the festival hit “Off the Grid”. The film will open on Friday, February 8 at the Hoff Theater in College Park, MD and at the Guild Cinema in Albuquerque, NM. These screenings will be followed by a nationwide theatrical release and television premiere on Sundance Channel's “The Green”. “The independent spirit of 'Off the Grid' makes this film an ideal match for IndiePix and our expansion into the theatrical market,” says Bob Alexander, CEO of IndiePix.

About Off the Grid

Twenty-Five miles from town, a million miles from mainstream society, a loose-knit community of eco-pioneers, teenage runaways, war veterans and drop-outs, live on the fringe and off the grid, struggling to survive with little food, less water and no electricity, as they cling to their unique vision of the American dream. As word about the Mesa spreads to the outside world, the community experiences growth and begins to attract new elements. A group of young people with anarchical tendencies, calling themselves “the nowhere kids,” claim responsibility for stealing food from houses, including that of a single mother. The community grapples with how to establish rule and avoid violence in the absence of of governmental interference.

Among it's many awards to date, “Off the Grid” was awarded the Michael Moore Award for Best Documentary Film. John Anderson of Variety found the film “stunning... the characters come to vivid life” and Michael Lerman of IndieWIRE writes: “A look at the American Southwest that will send chills down your spine.” “Off the Grid” has screened at Film Society of Lincoln Center's Independents Night, MoMA, Best of Slamndance Documentary Showcase 2007 at IFC Center, AFI/Silverdocs, Miami IFF, True/False, Sarasota and Raindance among others.
