DO I NEED THIS? is a documentary film about American excess and the stuff from which happiness is truly made.

This quirky, relatable, and profound award-winning film delicately interweaves the filmmaker’s complicated relationship to her family possessions during the late stages of her parents’ lives, together with a journey into the homes and minds of her fellow Americans. The film explores late-in-life decisions related to the stuff we accumulate over a lifetime, and how it impacts our loved ones once we are gone.
