ADFF Toronto: Rehab (from rehab) w/ Panel

Join us at ADFF Toronto for the Canadian Premiere of Rehab (from rehab).


Film Basics

86 mins | Italy and France | 2023
Directors: Louise Lemione and Ila Beka

Renowned directors Louise Lemione and Ila Beka are back with another incredible story to tell. Through a series of vignettes of patients going through physical rehabilitation at Swiss Architects Herzog & De Meuron’s REHAB center in Basel, Rehab (from rehab) demonstrates how a building itself can contribute to patients’ recovery stories. From the start, the architects did not intend for REHAB to look or feel like a hospital. The resulting space is multifunctional, easy to use, and beautiful. By zooming in on this incredible project, Lemione and Beka show us how great architecture enriches the lives and work of the people within. ADFF has screened many of their films in previous festivals, including Koolhaas Houselife (2008), Infinite Happiness (2015), and Tokyo Ride (2020).

Stick around for our short panel discussion happening immediately after the film for a great discussion on design’s impact on holistic health and wellbeing. You can find more information about our speakers below.
