About the Movie
This two-part full-length color documentary, completed in February ’09, has been more than 11 years in the making. Now you can actually see how representative communities look “up close” while you listen to members tell their stories in their own words.
Part One (94 min) features:
A brief history of 2500 years of shared living
Insights about what works and what doesn’t
Exploration of the “glue” that holds communities together
Profiles of seven diverse contemporary communities

What is Home 2.0?
We are a group of people around Vancouver, B.C. seeking to grow an intentional community to live in.
Perhaps you’ve been to Burning Man (or other communal experience) and left longing to remain in close proximity to others with a shared intention or values. Perhaps you’ve lived in shared housing or an intentional community before and wish to create something larger or longer-term. Or, perhaps you’ve heard of “ecovillages” or “communes” and find them a bit freaky or too hippy…but oddly compelling.
Intentional communities come in many shapes and under many names: co-housing, eco-villages, communes, housing co-ops. These communities can vary greatly in size, location, level of autonomy and purpose/s.
Come build our Home 2.0!
