Drying For Freedom Trailer

Posted by dryingforfreedom on Aug. 05, 2010

The newest trailer for WL-DOCS Drying For Freedom. A conflict is raging in the US. Protests, political movements and murder have taken place in the name of an unlikely ideal; clotheslines. Tens of millions of individuals across Northern America are banned from outdoor line drying by the very communities they live in, forcing them to turn to the dryer. Homeowners who break the rules are fined, sued and even foreclosed on. This ban is not only infringing on civil rights, its contributing to the environmental and energy crisis. The dryer is responsible for 6% of the average households energy bill and it costs the US an estimated $5 billion annually. Corporate America has sold the dryer and the consumption of electricity as a status symbol, and now they have their eyes on a much bigger prize - the world.
