Illegal Squatters. Radical Anarchists. Devout Christians. Welcome to OUR HOUSE.

Synopsis

Our House portrays the vibrant characters and daily life of an experimental commune for the homeless in a warehouse squat in Brooklyn.  Run by three young activists with progressive Christian beliefs, the unusual space was short-lived, but its impact is seen in the men and women that called it home.

On Dan Taylorʼs first day out of prison, he had nowhere to go and faced a life-changing decision: he could return to his past of drug addiction or try for something better. Through a chance encounter he met Derek, a young Christian anarchist, who invited him to move into a new and very unusual community called ʻOur Houseʼ.

An alternative to the impersonal homeless shelter system, ʻOur Houseʼ was an under-the-radar, illegal squat where the founders and the homeless lived and ate communally in an abandoned warehouse. Besides a roof and daily meals, Dan also found lasting friendships, a spiritual haven in a makeshift ʻprayer tent,ʼ and the hope of putting his life back together. But when the warehouse is set for demolition to make way for luxury condos, Dan and the other residents must confront the inevitable end of their community and what that will mean for their futures.
