Build.In.Kind/East Hampton and Wainscott Heritage Project Co-host Screening Of ‘One Big Home’

On Saturday, October 8, at 4 PM, Build.In.Kind/East Hampton and Wainscott Heritage Project will co-host a screening of the film “One Big Home” for the East Hampton community, followed by discussion and Q&A with the filmmaker Thomas Bena and special guests. The event will take place at LTV Studios at 75 Industrial Road in Wainscott.

“One Big Home” spans more than a decade and documents the story of how one person, a carpenter who worked on the construction of ever bigger houses in the town of Chilmark on Martha’s Vineyard, grew concerned about the impact of that building and decided to take action.

Esperanza Leon, a co-founder of Wainscott Heritage Project, said, “Thomas Bena fairly and objectively approaches issues of unrestrained development by including various and diverging points of view and tussling with his own perspectives and potential biases. It is easy and perhaps comforting to draw parallels between Martha’s Vineyard and the East End. What the film does best is to reassure any community threatened by a loss of character and sense of place that it is possible to slow or even halt that process and restore some balance.”

“Though a deeply local and personal story, I think this movie will resonate broadly here in East Hampton as we all grapple with the impact of intensifying overdevelopment on our local community and our land. The film is a testament to how the active engagement of citizens can achieve constructive change,” added Jaine Mehring, founder of Build.In.Kind/East Hampton.
