The Minimalists: Less Is Now

Matt D'Avella

Overview

As a society, we are not functioning to our full potential. Work and the pace at which we live life create so much stress that it blocks our happiness and clutters our minds. We buy things to make us happy, but the more we buy, the less happiness we have.

Matt D'Avella is a Netflix filmmaker focusing on lifestyle and productivity. In this documentary, D'Avella explores the question 'how can life be better with less?' first asked by two friends, Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus, now known as The Minimalists.

The minimalist lifestyle of only living with what you need and not buying into consumerist culture has lately become a trend. The Minimalists: Less is Now shows that minimalism is not so much about reducing our possessions as it is about increasing room for other things in life.

"If you visited my home today ... you would probably just ask how we keep things so organized. And I would just tell you that my family and I don't own much. But everything we do own adds real value to our lives."
