The Bunker Boom: Better Safe Than Sorry
USA / Documentary / 25 minutes
Director: Arianna LaPenne
Producer: Mona Karrenbach
The Bunker Boom explores a nascent South Dakota bunker community to understand how "prepping"; once considered a fringe subculture, has become increasingly mainstream. As the characters grapple with the personal dilemmas of leaving behind one life to start another, at the heart of the film is a question: whether our human need for community will triumph over our desire for security, even among avowed isolationists.

'Objects' follows three unique people who have held onto things which have gained incredible meaning for them over decades. These objects are not things they flaunt. They are things that touch them secretly…a fifty-year-old clump of grass, a sweater that once belonged to French actress, and a forty-year old sugar egg.
