The growing issue of monster homes is the star of a documentary that will be screening Thursday at 6 p.m. at the Honolulu Museum of Art.

Following a showing of Thomas Bena’s documentary, “One Big Home,” a panel discussion will be held on the issue featuring Honolulu City Councilman Trevor Ozawa, economist Paul Brewbaker, architect Dean Sakamoto, Tyler Dos Santos of the Hawaii Construction Alliance and Catherine Cruz of Hawaii Public Radio.

The critically acclaimed film explores Bena’s and other community members’ efforts to pass a law that limits house size in their town of Chilmark on Martha’s Vineyard.

The documentary explores a variety of questions: Is it our right to dictate what size house another person can build? What size is too big? Where does it end? How can we step up for our communities?
