BE LIKE AN ANT
Directed by Mike Plante
57 minutes, 2012
Post-Vietnam, Paul bought a trailer for his family to live in. After many bad winters, the mobile home became unlivable, so he took matters into his own hands and started to build a house – around the trailer. He never made any blueprints.
30 years, 4 floors and 100 windows later, the house is almost done.
A portrait of a 20th Century man, redemption of the spirit and the house as a teacher.
