“Inhabiting the giant ‘8 House’ built by Danish architect Bjarke Ingels in the suburbs of Copenhagen, lla Beka & Louise Lemoine recount their subjective experience of living inside this experiment of vertical village, elected in 2011 as the World’s Best Residential Building. The film draws the lines of a human map which allows the viewer to discover the building through an inner and intimate point of view and questions the architecture’s ability to create collective happiness showing the surprising results of this new type of social model of the 21st century.” Living Architectures

“This razor-sharp modern film noir, the first film by Joel and Ethan Coen, introduced the brothers’ inimitable black humor and eccentric sense of character, a sensibility that has helped shape the course of contemporary American cinema. Deep in the heart of Texas, a sleazy bar owner suspects his wife of having an affair and hires a private detective to confirm his suspicions – only to have the crosshairs turned back on himself. Playfully shot by Barry Sonnenfeld and featuring a haunting score by Carter Burwell and a cunning performance by Frances McDormand. Blood Simple was a career-launching film for this ensemble and the first articulation of the precision of style.
