Once Upon a Time in Knoxville is an uplifting documentary film about making more from less. In a country with one of the highest standards of living in the world, Rollo Sullivan says he lives in third-world sort of way. He and his family live off the land. They grow their own food, refine bio-diesel, generate hot water from the sun, and use outhouses. This may not seem glamorous, but Rollo predicts this lifestyle is the way of the future as the age of consumerism pushes the planet into resource collapse.

What’s inspiring about this film is how much fulfillment and gratification Rollo and his family receive from their sustainable lifestyle. Liberated rather than limited, Rollo happily scavenges for scraps and creatively turns them into housing for tenants. He humorously describes his work as a new movement in architecture that should be called “Appalachian Gothic.” Find out what on earth that looks like when you come to see the film!
