“if…”, a short film that explores the creativity of a group of children.
Directed in cooperation between Nils Clauss and Neil Dowling, “if…” is a lovely documentary exploring the imagination and inventiveness of a group of children from around the globe in response to the cities they inhabit. In various interviews, they tell us what they would do differently. This way, the thought-provoking short film explores diverse architectural concepts through the eyes of children from various cultural backgrounds. Produced in association with UIA Seoul, “if…” has been screened as an opening film at the World Architects Congress in Seoul.
Enjoy the film! For more of Nils Clauss’ work, please visit his portfolio. Some stills and full credits can be found below the video.
