Imagine a house that grows its own food.

That’s the vision of environmental campaigner Joost Bakker, who was once dubbed the ‘Poster Boy of Zero Waste Living’ by The New York Times. This inspiring feature documentary follows Bakker as he builds a self-sustaining home, an ecosystem that provides its occupants with water, energy, shelter and nourishment.

Joined in his work by internationally acclaimed chefs Matt Stone and Jo Barrett, Bakker faces his fair share of challenges to finish the home. Bureaucratic delays, COVID shutdowns and blackouts all threaten the build. But ultimately, GREENHOUSE BY JOOST is an uplifting look at the teamwork and ingenuity behind a paradigm-shifting project that bursts with life.

GREENHOUSE BY JOOST is the winner of the Audience Award at the Melbourne International Film Festival and comes from the award-winning producers of 2040, The Australian Dream and That Sugar Film.

*Please note, the 6pm session includes Q&A with special guests, Joost Bakker and Jack Thompson, after the film.
