Copenhagen Architecture Festival

Why go to a cinema at all, when you can watch any film at home, enjoying a cup of tea on your own sofa?

A special thing about CAFx film program is, that screenings go together with discussions and introductions, done by art or architecture historians, film directors and other experts, who can help you to go deeper into the questions raised in the films.

On April 11, 19.00 - 21.30, we invite you to Cinemateket to reflect on an uncomfortable topic: Why are we building prisons? Can incarceration ever help anyone to become a better person?

Watch a documentary, picturing famous architect Frank Gehry and filantrop George Soros discussing this question, and listen to criminologist Linda Kjær Minke and architect Steen Gissel from “Erik Arkitekter”, who was involved in designing of correctional institutions. The debates will be moderated by Tomas Martin from DIGNITY - Danish Institute Against Torture - an anthropologist specialized in prison sociology.

The film "Frank Gehry: Building Justice" is in English, while the debate will be held in Danish.
