The suggestion that the Danish film was a big factor in the increase in amount of cohousing built in Denmark is clever. Is there any evidence that it was a significant factor? Surely it helped, but how much? How was the film distributed in Denmark? How many people viewed it? There have been other factors since 1980, like the Internet, for example and just time. (It takes time for societal change.) (If Danish cohousing had really "continued to double every year", by my calculation: after 6 years there would be 768 communities ... and after 39 years there would be about 6,597,069,767,000 communities (12 x 2 to the 39th power). Be careful about making extordinary claims. Unrealistic expectations can backfire. ( BTW there were only 15 communities established in the US before 1993. Then Cohousing-L was established in 1993 and 145+ communites have been established in the last 26 years :) How will the film be distributed?
