Eclectic students and faculty from all over the planet meet at one of the the world's top industrial design school in Scandinavia's faraway north just below the Arctic Circle. 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.Written by
This documentary show the design process from the point of view of industrial design students from all over the world at a small school in northern Sweden. The environment is very open and nurturing and the filmmaker gets closer and closer to the key of industrial design as the film progresses. For someone who may not know much about the craft and engineering behind industrial design but is curious to learn more this is an excellent introduction and a great film. The characters come from various parts of the world but the school itself is threatened as Swedish education nowadays cost for non-European students. Watching this film you feel it would be very sad if the school would lose its non-European students.
