As part of the 2017 DADo film society series, a screening of the 2010 film Infinite Happiness will take audiences inside Bjarke Ingels’ giant “8 House” vertical social housing village in suburban Copenhagen through the use of a collection of life stories all interconnected by their personal relation to the building.
Hosted by the Robin Boyd Foundation at Walsh Street, the house designed by architect Robin Boyd for his family in 1958, the DADo film festival aims to bring “the best in documentaries and films on architecture, design and urbanism” to Melbourne audiences.
Each screening will be accompanied by a presentation by a guest speaker. Guest speakers in the past have included prominent architects, designers, academics, artists, film critics, and individuals whose interests and experience intersect with a particular film.
Bookings for DADo screenings are open first to film society subscribers. Booking information for non-subscribers can be found here.
