This film is part of an ongoing project to document the rise of a new movement - calling not for more economic growth, but LESS. The de-growth movement, or "mouvement por le decroissance", argues that through a voluntary reduction of the economy we can work less, consume less and live better, fuller lives. Many have been pointing out that our current economic system is leading us to an environmental and social catastrophe. "Life After Growth" begins to point to the people and communities who are looking for ways out. These are the pioneers who are rethinking the role of economics in our lives, and are engaging in different types of economic activity, right now. The "D word" is still taboo in many circles - politicians are loath to go against the growth orthodoxy that our society is based on. But everywhere people are engaging in de-growth type activity - the beginning of a wave that is laying the groundwork for a post-capitalist future.... Because it's not the size of the economy that counts, it's how you use it!
