TINY: a story about living small

USA, 2013, color, 65 minutes

Directed and Produced by: Christopher Smith, Merete Mueller
Sound Designer: Elliot Thompson
Music: Timothy Cleary

What is home? And how do we find it? TINY follows one couple’s attempt to build a Tiny House from scratch with no building experience, and profiles other families who have downsized their lives into houses smaller than the average parking space. Through homes stripped down to their essentials, the film raises questions about sustainability, good design, and the changing American Dream.  TINY is a coming-of-age story for a generation that is more connected, yet less tied down than ever, and for a society redefining its priorities in the face of a changing financial and environmental climate. More than anything, TINY invites its viewers to dream big and imagine living small.

ADVANCED TICKET REQUIRED ($15)
