Festivals also took place again in 2001 and 2003. In 2007 AFFR made a fresh start after a few years of silence. In 2009 the event expanded significantly in terms of visitor numbers and programming.

The View

A prison cell with a view of a blank wall or of a magnificent landscape: which punishment is more severe? According to the Danes, Greenland’s detainees serving their sentences in Danish prisons deserve better: a cell that looks out over the familiar imposing landscape of Greenland. A young architecture firm sets to work briskly on this assignment on the coast of Greenland, but the detainees are scarcely consulted for input. The film follows the growing miscommunication between optimistic believers in progress, prisoners and inhabitants. A disenchanting registration of the dilemmas that stem from good intentions and from cultural misunderstandings between users and designers.
