Humanity is more than ever threatened by its own actions; we hear a lot about the need to minimize footprints and to reduce our impact. But what if our footprints were beneficial? What if we could meet human needs while increasing the health and well-being of our planet? This is the premise behind permaculture: a design process based on the replication of patterns found in nature. INHABIT explores the many environmental issues today and examines solutions that are being applied using the ecological design lens of permaculture. Inhabit provides an intimate look at permaculture peoples and practices ranging from rural, suburban, and urban landscapes.
INHABIT is directed by Costa Boutsikaris and produced by Emmett Brennan.
92 minutes Full-Feature documentary
Filmmaker: Costa Boutsikaris grew up in the Hudson River Valley of New York. He studied filmmaking at the New York Film Academy and went on to receive a BA in Visual Arts and Film at Rutgers University. During his Senior year he took a Permaculture Design Course in New York City which began his fascination with ecological design and regenerative agriculture. After traveling around the Northeast US for a year learning more about this design philosophy and living at permaculture sites he was inspired to make his first feature documentary. After raising funds on KickStarter he converted a 1982 VW Van to run on vegetable oil and solar panels and began a three-year journey to make INHABIT.
100% of INHABIT proceeds go to charities that contribute to a more loving, kind, compassionate and equitable world for all. Proceeds from this screening will go to the Centre for Child Honouring and Seven Ravens Permaculture Academy & Permaculture Garden Projects in Africa.
