Even in the modern world, more than 1.3 billion people lack adequate housing. Local economic, cultural, and political conditions often keep these people from moving forward. However, a radical innovation is beginning to provide vulnerable people in the US and around the world with safe, affordable housing, setting their communities on a new trajectory.
Directed by MPI filmmaker Laura Waters Hinson (Mama Rwanda, Moving Violation, Dog Days), Project Home documents a group of tech entrepreneurs as they test the limits of emerging 3D printing technology and the families whose futures hang in the balance. Will the venture to build the world’s first 3D printed village succeed? And can this technology be a game-changer for the global housing crisis?
In a recent review critic Lois Alter Mark writes, “I believe Project Home will inspire others and will serve as a blueprint for addressing the housing crisis around the world….One day, 3D [printed] houses are likely to be as commonplace as the cars Henry Ford was laughed at for making. And this documentary will be celebrated for showing the impact of using the power of art to do good.”
