Event description

Description

The SCC welcomes you to join us for a screening of The Human Shelter as part of Boston Design Week 2019. How
do we construct homes in today’s worldwide hotspots which are facing the challenges of climate change, globalization
and migration? How do people create shelters and feel at home with others and in their bodies?

Boris Benjamin Bertram’s film The Human Shelter, explores different people’s ways of creating their homes around the globe. In a refugee camp outside Mosul, in a shanty town on the lagoon in Lagos, or in six square meters in the
mega-city of Tokyo... The exploring director also visits the Sami reindeer herders in the arctic circle, and NASA’s futuristic Mars habitat in Hawaii, USA. It’s a poetic expedition around four continents. An existential film about how
we construct and articulate stories about our homes.

The Human Shelter comprises seven chapters. Every chapter has a shelter with a human story and a poetic performance. Every one of these representations pushes the audience to think about what ‘home ’means to
them. To you...

Saturday, March 30th | 1pm | Tickets $5; FREE for SCC members
