Attendees continue the conversation with filmmaker Tom Bena.
The Community Development Corporation of South Berkshire’s mission is to create housing and economic opportunity for low and moderate income households in the southern Berkshires. This made the film chosen for the organization’s third free “community dinner and a movie” event on Thursday, Feb. 7 highly topical to area residents. A packed audience at The Triplex Cinema gathered to watch One Big Home, a documentary that chronicles carpenter-turned-filmmaker Tom Bena’s journey to understand the trends toward building giant houses on Martha’s Vineyard. Bena was on hand to answer questions following the film as the engaged audience did just what the filmmaker set out to do: Get people talking so they can play an active role in determining the destiny of their communities. The event was co-sponsored by BerkShares, Inc., Berkshire Community Land Trust, Construct, Inc., Great Barrington Land Conservancy, Schumacher Center for a New Economics, Sheffield Land Trust, and Stockbridge Land Trust.
