About the film

A new compelling doc about this fascinating and mysterious civilization in Northern Italy. Visit the hand dug Temples 150 ft under a mountain.. Learn why, where, how, and who are behind this innovative community that may hold the key to the future of mankind. Hear plants play music with humans, and meet the people that have made this happen.

In 2005, filmmaker Keith Busha found himself drawn to Italy to view and film the art of a unique, largely unknown community. He found their extensive and extraordinary art to be only a very small piece of a story that consumed him for years. After many trips and much research, this self-proclaimed, road weary skeptic opened his eyes and mind to the wonders of this enlightened and innovative community.

This film, originally about art, became a multilayered journey into the heart of a new and growing civilization that must be seen to be believed. A society where nothing is impossible and where there are no limits to what can be done.

Explore the enormous complex of subterranean, art-filled temples, hand dug inside of a mountain. Listen to plants that play music with humans. Visit their science labs where new sources of food and energy are being developed, and listen to music sung in their own recently created language.

Hidden doors and secret passageways are the norm when moving through this world of constant surprise and amazement. Come see for yourself, as layer upon layer of this enchanting and visionary community are revealed.

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!
