Directed by Thomas Bena
On Martha’s Vineyard where presidents and celebrities vacation, trophy homes threaten to destroy the island’s unique character. Twelve years in the making, One Big Home follows one carpenter’s journey to understand this trend toward mega-mansions. When he feels complicit in wrecking the place he calls home, director Thomas Bena takes off his tool belt and picks up a camera to explore the tensions between personal extravagance and natural preservation. A story about community activism. Now more than ever, we need to know that each of us has the power to affect change where we live.
