Language is the House we Live in
Jesper Fabricius

A dreamy film about Icelandic building sites. Director Jesper Fabricius is more interested in the possibilities of cinematographic expression than traditional storytelling. He plays with the magic of moving images, colours, movement, emotion. The result is a very personal essay on architecture.
