THE HUMAN SHELTER

2018

Directed by Boris Benjamin Bertram

How do we construct homes in today’s worldwide hotspots which are facing the challenges of climate

change, globalization and migration? How do people create shelters and feel at home with others and

in their bodies?

Boris Benjamin Bertram’s film The Human Shelter, explores different people’s ways of creating their

homes around the globe. In a refugee camp outside Mosul, in a shanty town on the lagoon in Lagos, or

in six square metres in the megacity of Tokyo... The exploring director also visits the Sami reindeer

herders in the arctic circle, and NASA’s futuristic Mars habitat in Hawaii, USA. It’s a poetic expedition

around four continents. An existential film about how we construct and articulate stories about our

homes.
