The Infinite Happiness

84 minutes 2015

New
Documentary makers Ila Bêka and Louise Lemoine explore the 8 House in suburban Copenhagen, a large mixed-use development built in the shape of a figure eight. The building contains residences, storefronts, a kindergarten, and public gardens, all connected by bike lanes and mazelike stairwells; the film's structure consists of short segments that jump from one spot to another and evoke the feeling of getting blissfully lost. The filmmakers address some of the fundamental questions of social architecture—How do architects achieve a balance between form and function? How do they work with the landscapes surrounding their creations?—while offering pleasant thumbnail portraits of many residents. In English and subtitled Danish.
