One Big Home
Thursday, August 17th

Gentrification comes in many forms. On the tiny island of Martha’s Vineyard, where presidents and celebrities vacation,
trophy homes threaten to destroy the island’s character.
Twelve years in the making, One Big Home follows one carpenter’s journey to understand the trend toward giant houses. 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.
