SYNOPSIS

Imagine a house that grows its own food. That’s the vision of environmental campaigner Joost Bakker, who was once dubbed the ‘Poster Boy of Zero-Waste Living’ by The New York Times. 

This inspiring feature documentary follows Bakker as he builds a self-sustaining home, an ecosystem that provides its occupants with water, energy, shelter and nourishment. 

Joined in his work by internationally acclaimed chefs Matt Stone and Jo Barrett, Bakker faces his fair share of challenges to finish the home. Bureaucratic delays, COVID shutdowns and blackouts all threaten the build. But ultimately, Greenhouse by Joost MIFF@CinefestOZ is an uplifting look at the teamwork and ingenuity behind a paradigm-shifting project that bursts with life. 

Filmed over the course of a year in beautiful central Melbourne, Greenhouse by Joost MIFF@CinefestOZ cleverly incorporates social media content to demonstrate the reach and influence of Bakker’s project. The documentary was created by the multi-award-winning Australian production company GoodThing Productions.

The screening will be followed up with a Q&A with the filmmakers.
