Be Like an Ant Screening 

After returning from the Vietnam War, Paul Plante purchased a trailer for his family to live in outside Troy. Frustrated with the unlivable conditions during winter, he began to build a DIY house around his trailer. Thirty years on and still in the making, the home is almost completed, with a structure built with no blueprints. Paul's nephew, filmmaker Mike Plante, created this documentary to chronicle the progression of his uncle's unconventional home. "Be like an ant," Paul Plante says. "Every day, I am making more mountains." Be Like an Ant will be screened at Basilica Hudson in Hudson at 8 pm on June 13 with two other short films, Jason's Byrne's A Ship Runs Aground and Brent Green's Weird Carolers. Mike Plante will be in attendance for a Q&A after the screening. (518) 822-1050.
