LIVING THE CHANGE
1 year, 12 short films, 1 feature-length documentary
About the project
Living the Change is a series of short documentary films that focus on permaculture, tiny houses, backyard gardeners, natural buildings, simple livers, and anyone with an inspiring story to tell about the transition to a new and more resilient way of life on earth in the face of the crises we’re facing.
What’s the plan?
We’re traveling the North and South Islands of New Zealand capturing and sharing the inspiring stories of people making change in their lives towards living in a sustainable and resilient way. We’ve released two films so far which can be viewed below, and we’ll be releasing a bunch more over the coming months.
A combination of all the short films, interviews with experts, and footage of the journey will be combined into a feature-length documentary for release in 2017.
We’re currently traveling in the South Island for two months. You can follow along with the journey on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. We’d love to hear your feedback and ideas for people and places to visit.
Film 1 – From Finance to Farmer
Film 2 – Living Simply in a Tiny Off Grid Cabin
Film 3 – An Invitation for Wildness
Film 4 – Urban Abundance
Film 5 – Coming soon…
