This documentary explores everyday life, unique study methods and dynamic design processes at Umeå Institute of Design during the school's 25th anniversary when traditionally welcoming and generous Sweden, with its export-driven economy, imposes steep tuition fees for non-Europeans, the very students that have been instrumental in making the school what it is today.

Sympathetic and entertaining.
20 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

Hela världen i en designskola or All the world in a design school in English is a very entertaining film about some international students at a small industrial design school in Umeå in northern Sweden. It shows the everyday lives of these students and the struggles they have to go through to finish their projects. The faculty is very close and very personal and the contact between students and teachers is portrayed in a very beautiful way. Overall a very entertaining and beautiful documentary about an unexpected subject. This is truly a film I would recommend everyone interested or even not interested in industrial design.
