Film: Infinite Happiness

2010, Dir. Louise Lemoine, Ila Bêka, 85 mins, English.

Conceived as a personal video diary, The Infinite happiness is an architectural experience. The film takes us to the heart of one of the contemporary housing development considered to be a new model of success.

Inhabiting the giant “8 House” built by Danish architect Bjarke Ingels in the suburbs of Copenhagen, Ila Bêka & Louise Lemoine recount their subjective experience of living inside this experiment of vertical village, elected in 2011 « World best residential building ».

As a Lego game, the film builds up a collection of life stories all interconnected by their personal relation to the building. The film draws the lines of a human map which allows the viewer to discover the building throu-gh 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 21rst century.
