Several great documentaries on the Tiny House Movement have come out in recent years; but this one captures the story from the human side unlike I’ve ever seen. Filmmaker Jeremy Beasley captures the physical and emotional challenges faced by folks who take on their own tiny house endeavor while at the same time taking the shiny wrapping many tiny house stories come wrapped-in.
While the story unfolds the viewer is pushed & pulled emotionally, not sure where this story is headed. This not only makes the film riveting to watch, but encourages one to reflect on their own opinion and/or involvement with the Tiny House Movement – at least that was my experience. Without revealing any spoilers I can say I felt re-energized by this film and have begun to re-double my own involvement in the movement to think smaller.
Here’s what director Jeremy Beasley had to say about his film:
“I wasn’t aiming to glorify tiny house living. I explored what it is really like to build and live in a tiny house, sharing the subjects struggle and triumphs – and their real life journey through it. I wanted the film to go deeper than trends or aesthetic. I wanted it to be courageous and vulnerable. To explore the real human aspect living tiny.”
Small is Beautiful: A Tiny House documentary is available worldwide for download (which you get to keep forever) for $9.99 via SmallBeautifulMovie.com
There is loads of bonus content in different packages there with hours of great info and footage that we couldn’t fit in the film as well. If you love tiny houses, the deluxe edition of the film is the best option.
Small is Beautiful is also available on iTunes, Vimeo on Demand, Amazon Instant and Google Play. You can also watch it on iTunes now.
Looking for a little hope and extremely alternative housing solutions by connecting with real people? There’s a new documentary coming out called Craigslist Joe where a young man tries to live on nothing but what he can find on Craigslist. It’s a bit off topic but worthy of a peek.
