Yard Work is Hard Work: a short film about buying a home and other things

Professor Jodie Mack created this collage animation movie using all recycled materials. It’s about relationships, consumerism, and homeownership. So basically, the American “Dream.”

I especially enjoyed the scenes with the financial planner (including a cameo appearance by paper cut-out Roger Ebert) and the couple’s peaceful vacation.

The whole thing made me wonder about money and happiness. And if the goals we (think) we need to reach are really worth reaching for.

I hope you like it. 27 min.
