Visions of Utopia: Part 2
by Geoph Kozeny

This two-part full-length color documentary, completed in February, has been more than 11 years in the making. Now you can actually see how representative communities look "up close" while you listen to members tell their stories in their own words.

Visions of Utopia, Part 2, making its first public world showing here, features retrofit cohousing, cooperative rural farming communities, affordable retrofit neighborhoods, urban income-sharing, limited-equity cooperative, an EcoVillage, a non-residential community, a remote permaculture enclave, and more.

See The Farm Community in Tennesee, Ganas on Staten Island, Sandhill Farm in Missouri, Goodenough Community in Seattle, Catholic Worker House and more
