Film Screening, TINY: A Story About Living Small

Join us on Friday, April 3, for another independent film describing the story of one young couple with no building experience who attempt to build a tiny house, raising questions about what constitutes good design, sustainability, and the underlying narrative of the American dream.

This screening will be held at 6:00 pm at BSA Space (290 Congress Street, Boston) and is the fifth film in Keeping it Reel, a six-part BSA Space Film Series covering various design topics. Complimentary refreshments and popcorn will be servedAll proceeds from the series support the BSA Foundation

What is home? And how do we find it? TINY is a coming-of-age story for not only a generation that is more connected yet less tied down than ever but also a society that is redefining its priorities in the face of a changing financial and environmental climate. More than anything, Tiny invites its viewers to dream big and imagine living small.

From 1970 to 2010, the average size of a new house in America nearly doubled. Yet in recent years, many are redefining their American dream to focus on flexibility, financial freedom, and quality of life over quantity of space. These self-proclaimed “Tiny Housers” live in homes that are smaller than the average parking space, often built on wheels to bypass building codes and zoning laws.
