Post-screening Q&A discussion featuring Thomas Bena, the filmmaker of One Big Home

The inaugural Block Island Film Festival kicks off with a special program at the National Hotel that includes a screening of One Big Home followed by a Q&A forum with the filmmaker Thomas Bena.

Twelve years in the making, One Big Home follows one carpenter's journey to understand the trend toward giant houses. When he feels complicit in wrecking the place he calls home, Thomas Bena takes off his tool belt and picks up a camera. Bumping up against angry homeowners and builders who look the other way, he works with his community and attempts to pass a new bylaw to limit house size.
