In “One Big Home”, we see how a community can determine its own destiny, and explores over-development of communities as a complex cultural issue.

Gentrification comes in many forms. On the tiny island of 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 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.

Bring the family, a neighbor, or a good friend for this moving documentary and take part in our open discussion after the film. For further questions, please contact the office of Environmental Affairs at 973-509-5721, or,grussell@montclairnjusa.org
