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.
Katie McCamant learned about cohousing as an architecture student in Denmark in the early 1980s. With her former husband, Charles Durrett, she brought the idea to the United States and promoted the concept widely, helping design many American cohousing communities. Katie and Chuck were equal partners as cohousing’s American leaders, writing several book together and conducting countless workshops. She lives in Nevada City Cohousing and continues to consult on projects throughout North America.
We're excited to announce that the film will be aired on KVIE (the PBS affiliate of Northern California) four times in March of 2020! Tune in on:
