Tiny House Documentary: Microtopia

I just found out about this new tiny housing documentary called Microtopia thanks to Derek Markham at Treehugger and wanted to tell you about.

It’s a documentary with a different style than we’re used to in the tiny house world in my opinion but it focuses on the fact that most of us live in homes that are too big.

In return this often creates financial problems as well as potential environmental and waste issues. So the documentary gives us inspiring stories and micro homes that might be part of the solution.

I encourage you to enjoy the free preview/trailer of this micro housing documentary below:

Microtopia is a documentary about micro dwellings, downsizing and living off the grid.

“How would you feel about carrying your home in your pocket or having clothes to live in? For most of us, “house” means stability, structure, and permanence. In an age of increasing population and technological gains, today’s mobile society has resulted in a demand, or perhaps a dream, for portable dwellings and dwellings in new settings and situations. Microtopia explores how architects, artists and ordinary problem-solvers are pushing the limits to find answers to their dreams of portability, flexibility – and of creating independence from “the grid”. Modern nomads, homeless people, people in stress, people in need of privacy or seclusion. We hear about the personal reasons behind the dwellings, and to see how they actually work. On the sidewalk, on rooftops, in industrial landscapes and in nature we will see and feel how these abodes meet the dreams set up by their creators. Microtopia deals with a contemporary urgent ideas that are addressed, and solved, in a very surprising way.”  Source

Directed by Jesper Wachtmeister of Solaris Film. Produced by Jonas Kellagher of Eight Millimetres.

Currently the film is available as an on-demand rental at Vimeo for $3.99 but even though it’s available in 200+ countries, it’s not available to rent in the US or Canada yet. But at least we get the preview, right?
