“A Small Good Thing” explores what it takes to live a good life at the beginning of this new century.

Bring the film to Your Community

Instead of putting the films in theaters and offering the DVD for individual sale, we believe that watching this film should be an event that actively brings a community together and facilitates the conversation about what it means to live a happier and more connected life.

We have created a number of screening package options so that groups both large and small can watch the film together and transform their communities.
