Jesper Watchmeister and his film crew started two years ago, to create a documentary about the international trend towards smaller, well-designed houses. It highlights the movement toward small living. “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

The description from their website:

“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.”

MICROTOPIA – a documentary about micro dwellings, downsizing and living off the grid. – Trailer from Eight Millimetres on Vimeo.

    I watched the trailer and would love to see the documentary, but tried to rent and it is not available in my region. Currently, I live in NYC. Can you send info directing me to a viewing source? Thank you. ~Marilyn Aspen
