Be Like An Ant


on Oct 24, 2012

Debut feature-length documentary from film producer/festival programmer Mike Plante. Post-Vietnam, Paul bought a trailer for his family to live in. Annoyed by how bad living inside a mobile home during winter could be, he took matters into his own hands and started to build a house around the trailer. He never made any blueprints. As the house took shape, he would take a part of the trailer apart, carry it out back and burn it. Twenty-five years, four floors and one-hundred windows later, the house is almost done.
