"A Small Good Thing" by Pamela Tanner Boll (2015, 71 min.) While the philosophy of “more is better” has been key to American economic success for the past 50 years, we now find ourselves backed into an isolated corner—where our devices, celebrity entertainment, dream homes and wealth aren’t making us any happier. "A Small Good Thing" explores how the American Dream has reached its end and how for most of us, greater material wealth and upward mobility are no longer possible. To find out what is taking its place, this feature documentary follows six people in one community who have recast their lives so they can live with a sense of meaning—more connected to themselves, the natural world, and the greater good.
