A DECENT HOME

Friday, February 18th  |  Doors 6:30pm Show 7:00pm  |  The Wilma

When housing that's on the lowest run of the American Dream is being devoured by the wealthiest of the wealthy, whose dream are we serving? A DECENT HOME addresses urgent issues of class and economic (im)mobility through the lives of mobile home park residents who can't afford housing anywhere else. 

 

Join us for the in-person return of the Big Sky Documentary Film Festival on Friday, February 18th at The Wilma followed by a special Q&A conversation with filmmaker Sara Terry. Opening night is a ticketed event in 2022, reservations are required to attend and seating will be limited. Tickets on sale Monday, January 31!  We look forward to welcoming you back to the festival and this special opening night exhibition.
