Twelve years in the making, One Big Home follows one carpenter’s journey to understand the trend toward giant houses on the tiny island of Martha’s Vineyard, where trophy homes threaten to destroy the island’s unique character. When he feels complicit in wrecking the place he calls home, he takes off his tool belt and picks up a camera. Bumping up against angry homeowners and builders who look the other way, he works with his community and attempts to pass a new bylaw to limit house size.

 

The showing of One Big Home includes a post-screening discussion with director/filmmaker Thomas Bena.

obh_publicity_still_house_big_aerial_jobsite_01“A wonderful, moving, important film.”
–– Laurie David, producer, An Inconvenient Truth

“A universal human interest story that asks what our responsibilities are to our environment and our planet.

obh_publicity_still_character_thomas_driving_02 “I hope my film will spark a discussion about the way we regard housing, land ownership, and the economic forces that shape our communities. Rather than throwing up our arms and saying ‘you can’t fight progress,’ communities can stand up for themselves, their way of life, and the natural environment.”
– Thomas Bena, Director, One Big Home
