In Jesper Wachtmeister’s new documentary Microtopia presented a handful of people around the world who have made compact living to a whole new level in absolute mini format. In the emerging movement for micro housing fits both liberty pursuit and criticism of the consumer society. Is it time to get off the treadmill, leave the norms around work and consumption, sell the home and move into a poncho? We follow a handful of people who are exploring the possibility of living outside society’s frames in heavily scaled-down housing.
