‘Project Home’ Makes World Premiere at Heartland International Film Festival
October 15, 2022
The MPI Original feature length documentary Project Home: 3D Printing the Futuremade its world premiere this week at the Heartland International Film Festival in Indianapolis, Indiana. Director Laura Waters Hinson (Mama Rwanda, Dog Days, Moving Violation), a longtime MPI filmmaker and American University assistant professor, joined producers Lana Link, Kristi Kendall, and Davis Huber at the premiere to celebrate the film’s success.
Project Home explores the potential impact of 3D printing technology on the global housing crisis. The film follows the innovators at New Story, Icon, and Habitat for Humanity as they develop communities using 3D printing to build houses. The film showcases this novel idea while also documenting the stories of two single working mothers who are able to buy their first homes thanks to this innovative technology. One lives in an impoverished village in Mexico where New Story and Icon are building a community of 3D printed houses, and the other lives in Virginia where Habitat for Humanity is sponsoring her new home. The film shows how community, entrepreneurship, and innovation can transform the housing sector.
The film will have its West Coast premiere at the Awareness Festival this Sunday at 1:00 p.m. in Los Angeles, California. Purchase tickets here.
