Sprawling from Grace: The Consequences of Suburbanization
This film encapsulates one of the primary reasons I became interested in urban planning: the environmental impacts of our urban development patterns.

Beyond the natural environment, this documentary also considers some of the consequences to the human environment and loss of community that comes from the suburban lifestyle.
