Film Synopsis from A Design Film Festival

Banksy Does New York

by Chris Moukarbel (USA, 79 mins)

When infamous street artist Banksy revealed his NYC residency, he set off a daily scavenger hunt among fans, would-be art collectors, and, of course, the police. Everyone wanted a piece of his ephemeral works before they were destroyed or removed. Chris Moukarbel tracks the course of Banksy's secretly created works across NYC and explores the unprecedented speed of the public's reaction.

Crazy About Tiffany’s

by Matthew Miele (USA, 86 mins)

From behind the scenes with the Tiffany family and their first-ever female design director Francesca Amfitheatrof to Hollywood and the Super Bowl where the Tiffany-designed trophy gets victoriously hoisted, the film tells the story of a how simple jewellery shop in New York became a global brand and retail phenomenon with no less than its own Pantone trademark.

Design Disruptors

The future of business is being written by companies and products that—intentionally or not—shake billion dollar industries. Enter the world of 15+ industry-toppling companies - valued at more than $1 trillion dollars combined - with one unifying secret advantage: the transformative power of design. Design Disruptors reveals a never-before-seen perspective on the design approaches of these companies and how they are overtaking billion dollar industries through design.

Noma: My Perfect Storm

by Pierre Deschamps (UK, 95 mins)

Noma: My Perfect Storm is a creative journey into the mind of René Redzepi. How did he manage to revolutionise the entire world of gastronomy, inventing the alphabet and vocabulary that would infuse newfound pedigree to Nordic cuisine and establish a new edible world while radically changing the image of the modern chef? The film follows him as he fights his way back to the top, reinventing NOMA and reclaiming the title of best restaurant in the world for the fourth time.
