Eco School House is a documentary film about a community working together to build a sustainable future for its children.
In the early morning hours of a cold Midwest winter, someone set fire to a classroom on the grounds of a 100-year-old elementary school. Guided by a visionary architect with help from a committed builder and a determined principal, they battle extreme weather, financial challenges, and time constraints to complete the first community-built, sustainable schoolhouse in the nation. This inspirational story will challenge your views about architecture, environmentalism and education.
Built with renewable materials and volunteer labor, the schoolhouse has inspired a progressive new curriculum for the students and provides an enduring education for us all.
