“Minka” trailer from Birdling Films on Vimeo.

Former AP journalist John Roderick (now deceased) and his adopted son Yoshihiro Takishita rehabilitated a farm house in the country-side of Japan in 1967 and built a beautiful and peaceful living space out of it.

Filmmaker Davina Pardo was so enticed by this space that he began a documentary project about the architectural wonder in and is now hoping to raise additional funds to complete and distribute the final project via Kickstarter.

Amazingly, the project has already exceeded its $10,000 fundraising goal in just 10 days but you can continue to support and help the project by helping them reach $20,000 so that they can distribute the finished project. Check out the trailer above to see a preview of what’s to come.
