Summary
Publisher description: "Drying For Freedom" travels from America's clothesline-free yards to India's open-air laundromats to explore how the electric dream was marketed, without regard for its environmental and other impacts. In post-war America, the push to "Live Better Electrically", with Ronald Reagan as spokesman, was symbolized by the selling of energy hungry clothes dryers to replace the centuries-old zero energy outdoor clothesline. With archival TV ads and commentary, the film looks at how consumer demand was created for an electric utopia, where the dryer became a necessity and the clothesline became an ugly thing of the past. Convenience trumped consequence, as energy consumption rose rapidly, with significant impacts on the environment - and personal freedom. Sixty years later, more than 50 million Americans live in communities where energy efficient clotheslines are banned as unsightly. But line-drying activist Alexander Lee has campaigned since 1997 across America for the "Right to Dry", turning the age-old clothesline into a powerful symbol for efforts to reduce carbon emissions
