Myriad lines surround our day-to-day lives, exiting and entering our homes. Wires connect to electricity posts which power and heat our dwellings. Cables hook us to telephone and internet networks. Other lines stretch the world closer to us and our homes closer to the world: paved driveways link us with roads and highways, mains tap us into common water reserves and flow into municipal sewers, satellite beams reach into the atmosphere to download television signals into our living rooms.

Together these lines constitute extensive and powerful webs through which our lives are suspended. These are the “grids” upon which society is pegged, the grids through which our social relations are entangled.

Not everyone, however, is caught in these grids. People who for many different reasons have cut off these lines and spun alternative webs have begun to live “off-the-grid.”

Life Off Grid is a two-year journey exploring the lives of Canadians in every province and territory who have made the choice to disconnect. A film about people who have chosen to build their lives around renewable energy, with beautiful, inspiring, and often challenging results.
