The Honolulu Museum of Art will screen Thomas Bena's documentary One Big Home on May 24 at 6pm. 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, he 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.

A post-screening discussion about monster homes in Hawaii will be moderated by Catherine Cruz, Co-Host of
Hawaii Public Radio's The Conversation. The panelists will include Trevor Ozawa, Council Member, Honolulu City Council District IV, Dean Sakamoto, Dean Sakamoto Archtects LLC, SHADES Group, Tyler Dos Santos-Tam, Hawaiʻi Construction Alliance and Paul Brewbaker, TZ Economics.

Special thanks to community partners Mālama Mānoa and HI Good Neighbor.
