The Massachusetts island of Martha’s Vineyard has long been a destination for seaside summer vacations. In the eyes of filmmaker Thomas Bena, though, huge houses have threatened the tiny island’s unique character. As a carpenter, Bena watched as homes of up to 20 thousand square feet took shape, only to sit vacant — and heated — for 10 months a year. This supersize scenario didn’t sit right with Bena, so he got behind the camera and confronted homeowners, builders and community members to create his 2016 exposé One Big Home. White River Indie Films presents a screening of the hard-hitting documentary followed by a discussion with the filmmaker.
