ADFF:ONLINE | The Human Shelter
8:00 pm ET + Q&A w/ Boris Bertram - The program will be repeated at 8:00 pm PT
This film is an epic, poetic journey investigating how we, as human beings, design and build our homes. The film will explore the concept of the “home,” and how humans express themselves creatively within that sacred space, whether it’s a lagoon settlement in Lagos, a refugee camp in Iraq or a six square-meter dwelling in Tokyo.
