Our screening of American Homes in November didn’t have a huge crowd, but got great reviews, so we will rescreen it in February. This time, we will screen two additional bonus features as well.

American Homes is the 12 minute version of the film that has been making the rounds on the festival circuit. The American Idea of Home is a 25 minute version with narration by Gwendolyn Wright, Professor of Architecture at Columbia University.

The two linked films offer an animated exploration of the American home. The first gathers voices from the world of design and architecture that weigh in on what a house is and can be. In the second, renowned historian Gwendolyn Wright offers a mind-bending tour of 1800 years of American culture through the lens of residential design.

We will begin the evening with a reception and light refreshments, followed by the screening at 6:30 p.m. As always, we'll stick around for a few minutes afterwards for a discussion of the film.
