ArchFilmLund prize 2023: Soviet Bus Stops

Christopher Herwig Photograph and Producer of the film Soviet Bus Stops

Oliver Gras reading the motivation for the prize:

For chasing the humble traces left by free spirits living in a harsh and heavily controlled society, for giving to these acts of poetry and resistance the recognition that they deserve, and for reminding us that every society has its form of alienation or diktats which it is the role of the artist to challenge.

When building these bus stops the local souls found a place to express their own fantasy and show them proudly to the rest of the society, that’s in itself  a kind of manifest about what living together could, or should, be about: exchanging fantasies.

Beautiful photography, humor, warm human encounters and a soundtrack to travel in time and geography makes it a wonderful journey.ArchFilmLund is proud to give the ArchFilmLund Prize 2023 to Kristoffer Hegnsvad for his film Soviet Bus Stops.

I samarbete med Hållbarhetsfestivalen och Synaps visar ArchFilmLund denna dokumentär kl 13 på Stenkrossen lördag 13/4 kl 13. Filmvisning föjs av en diskussion om konst och film med forskarna Emma Johansson och Torsten Krause vid LUCSUS.

Made in Ilima a documentary by Thatcher Bean ( Congo / US )


In the center of Equator Province, Democratic Republic of the Congo, the Ilima community remains one of the most isolated in the world. They have coexisted with endangered wildlife in their surrounding forest for generations, but as the pace of development has increased, this fragile ecosystem has suffered. They partnered with the African Wildlife Foundation and MASS Design Group in 2012 to create a new conservation focused primary school and community center - one that had to endure for generations, yet be built almost exclusively using local materials. 

Cinematographer and educator Rachel Brose grew up in the Congo and relocated to Ilima in order to document this entire collective process - one aimed at leveraging local craft and ecological knowledge towards education, preservation, and beauty.
