Kirsten Dirksen – World of Windows, How We live now, How will We live?

Three part documentary mirrored from Kirsten Dirksen, *faircompanies, April 2020.

Part 1: World of Windows: pandemic-proof collaboration to (re)build resilience

A virus, smaller than a micron, has made it clear that we are now a world without borders. Confined to our homes, we now share similar fears, and often, hopes. We asked creators, builders, thinkers, friends from dense cities to isolated wilderness to show us their view right now.

Part 2: How we live now: tips from offgridders, tinyhousers, homesteaders

For some, preparing for the unexpected has been a way of life for years. We visit (via their cameras) permaculture farmers in Tulsa, Oklahoma growing much of their food in backyard hoop houses, a rainwater harvester collecting and reusing water at home and off the streets of Tucson, Arizona, an A-frame cabin builder at home surrounded by the wilderness of Central Mexico, a family in Kauai, Hawaii living off the land in their hand built tiny home of recycled materials. They bring us some tips from their homesteads or city apartments (like instructions for a living wall from recycled drink bottles from our friends in Mexico City).

Part 3: How will we live? urban prepping & rural resilience’s momentum

To catch a glimpse of what our future might hold, we visit (again, via their cameras) some who have been prepping for the next big earthquake in San Francisco, climate change in Hawaii and the extreme winter in off-grid Alaska.
