TINY: A Story About Living Small (Christopher Smith & Merete Mueller, 2013) is a documentary about home and how we find it. The film follows one couple’s attempt to build a Tiny House from scratch and profiles other individuals and families who have downsized to dwellings smaller than the average parking space. By advocating for houses stripped down to their essentials, the film raises questions about environmental impact, sustainable design, and the changing American Dream.

The screening will be followed by a discussion with co-director Merete Mueller and architectural scholar Graham Cairns. This event is programmed and moderated by Sylvie Vitaglione (NYU Cinema Studies) in conjunction with "Housing - Critical Futures", organized by the journal Architecture Media Politics Society.
