About the Film:
WITHIN REACH explores one couple's pedal-powered search for a place to call home. Mandy and Ryan gave up their jobs, cars and traditional houses to "bike-pack" 6500 miles for 2 years around the USA seeking sustainable community. Rather than looking in a traditional neighborhood, they begin to recognize that community is the secret ingredient to living sustainably on this planet. Along the way, they explored 100 Ecovillages, Cohousing Communities, Co-op Houses, Communes, Transition Towns and their own principles and commitment. In the end they return to the timeless truth that community is people; they are everywhere; and there is room for everyone. Both their journey and their film have answered the question that they and many others are asking: How can we pass along a lush, beautiful, sustainable world to future generations? After circling the country and interviewing hundreds of Americans, they have found that by reaching within sustainable community is Within Reach. In fact, it’s already here.
