| Tiny Houses and Bigger Ideas
This is an interesting documentary, which has two themes. Much of it follows the building of a "tiny house", which is mounted on a trailer, caravan/motorhome style. These "houses" don't look much like vans, but more like what you would expect from the title, and are very clever in their use of space to achieve this. The other theme of the film is the motivation behind living in such small spaces (nearly all less than 200sq.ft.) in a world of ever-growing house sizes. It is clear that, by and large, the people who promote this kind of living, are committed and engaging. We meet quite a few owners "at home", and a cat seems to play an important role in many of their lives. We saw this film in Melbourne (Australia) and there was a actual-size floor plan on the floor just outside the cinema entrance, of the main tiny house in the film. The screening was unusual too in that quite a few folks stayed in the cinema after the film, to chat about what they had seen. If this topic is of interest, you will enjoy this film.
