Architecture+Design Film Festival: A Word for Human

Available to rent Sept 16-20
Directed by Mauricio Gonzalez-Aranda
2018, Denmark, 59 min
English and Danish with subtitles

This title is available to rent via Cinematheque at Home. This is not only an opportunity for our patrons to see new cinema, but is an important way that they can continue to support independent film during this pandemic with 50% of all sales supporting our theatre.

The film weaves a portrait which takes us behind the scenes of The Danish Royal Library in Copenhagen. Hover alongside producer Christina Back as she goes about curating an exhibition about the colonial gaze and Denmark’s history of slavery. Lie in silence experiencing the calm emanating from a chamber of treasures curated by Marina Abramović. Shadow producer Lise Bach Hansen backstage and sink into the Queen’s Hall dark auditorium reverberating with the booming words and images of Olafur Eliasson, Henrik Saxgren, and Kim Leine about the fate of the arctic. Produced by Ingvar Kolbjørnsen (The Act of Killing…), it had its world premiere at CPH Dox and recently won the prize for Best Featurette Documentary at Oaxaca Film Festival.

Sponsored by Printmonger Press.


Now in its ninth year, the Architecture + Design Film Festival (A+DFF) presents critically acclaimed films focusing on the importance of architecture and design in everyday life. The films cover a range of design-oriented topics from architecture and urban design to graphics and product design. A+DFF is the only festival in Canada devoted solely to architecture and design. This festival is generously supported by The Manitoba Association of Architects, The Winnipeg Foundation, the Faculty of Architecture Endowment Fund (University of Manitoba), and presented in partnership with Urban Idea and the WFG Cinematheque.
