WHY THIS FILM? AND WHY NOW?

Originally a Danish creation, cohousing struggled to gain popularity in its country of origin for years. That is, until a film was made that explained its merits and how people found it enhanced their lives. It's time for the United States to have a meaningful and honest film about cohousing. 


'The Best of Both Worlds' explores the lives of residents in four cohousing communities in Northern California. It also examines senior cohousing communities and how living in them improves the quality of life of residents.
