Big Time

December 06, 2017 | 6:00pm

This might be the mantra by which the Danish architect Bjarke Ingels lives. Bjarke is a proclaimed genius worldwide, but nevertheless, he leads a life, which leaves little room for privacy. Perhaps because of this, he values it highly and works hard to protect it. The danish director Kaspar Astrup Schröder has followed the Danish star-architect over the course of five years. Most people know Bjarke Ingels for his work, but the film BIG TIME gets up and close to the person that is Bjarke Ingels. What has been the cost of his success? With whom has he chosen to share it? What about love? Does his life leave any room for it? These are some of the questions that the film focuses on - questions that surround everyone in contemporary society. What happens when your health is threatened? What does the success and hard work mean then?

Set to a rich orchestral score from legendary composer Philip Glass, the film offers an unprecedented, intimate portrait of Jane Goodall — a trailblazer who defied the odds to become one of the world’s most admired conservationists.

Bending The Arc

August 10, 2017 | 8:05pm

Thirty years ago, a group of improbable heroes came together on a mission that was both medical and moral, and, by everyone’s estimation other than their own, highly unlikely to succeed. Their goal was simple but daring: to make high quality healthcare available to everyone, even in the world’s poorest countries. Told through interviews, rare archival material and on-the-ground contemporary footage featuring Dr. Paul Farmer (legendary founder of Partners In Health), Dr. Jim Yong Kim (maverick President of the World Bank), and Dr. Agnes Binagwaho (controversial Health Minister of Rwanda), the film is an emotionally charged, dramatic and inspiring journey with these brilliant and headstrong heroes.
