Minimalism – A Film About the Important Things

How might your life be better with less?


Directed by Matt D’Avela, this documentary explores the experiences of the duo Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus, aka The Minimalists, in their search for happiness by owning less. Preceded by books, lectures and podcasts on the subject, this film released in 2016 examines the many flavors of minimalism by taking the audience inside the lives of minimalists from all walks of life—families, entrepreneurs, architects, artists, journalists, scientists, and even a former Wall Street broker—all of whom are striving to live a meaningful life with less “stuff”.
