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
I was imagining a documentary on industrial design to be a bit dull and boring, but "All the world in a design school" is anything but boring. We get a chance to follow some international students at a school in northern Sweden during a year of studies when the school is in trouble because Sweden has decided to start to charge students from outside Europe school fees. The characters, a Chinese guy, Turkish guy, a Dutch and a French guy all shows what makes their world inside the school so exciting and inspiring even for us who has never been in the school. The school's teachers also show us what an interesting world a school of industrial design can be. I really liked this film.
