ABOUT THE FILM

Small really is beautiful in this perfectly-formed look at scaling down how and where we live. Designers and architects from around the world ask themselves how much space and how many possessions do we really need? Portable tiny homes on wheels, tents hanging from trees, islands built from garbage – all design concepts which challenge us to think what a home actually means. The sense of freedom achieved when we’re not surrounded by “stuff” is palpable. As the world’s resources continue to dwindle, Microtopia presents solutions to living with fewer environmental consequences, and small spaces that you will lust after.
