Due to Covid-19, we have not been able to comfortably enjoy watching a movie at the cinema for quite some time, but for those who are lucky enough to be in Sweden, it was just opened on mini cinema outdoors of the Nobel Prize Museum, located in Sergels Torg, in Stockholm. Coinciding with the presentation of the winners of the Nobel Peace Prize 2020 that just became known today, this cinema will screen documentaries about the award winners directed by Orlando von Einsiedel. He Peace Nobel has relapsed this year in the World Food Program (PMA) of the UN, the agency of United Nations that works against hunger and promotes food security.
“Like own Nobel Prize, these films are about the ability of human beings to find solutions to the challenges we face over and over again ”, says Erika Lanner, director of the Nobel Prize Museum, it’s a statement. “This year it is particularly important to highlight accomplishments that give us hope for the future, and these films do just that.”
The cinema is the work of the artist and designer Fredrik Paulsen, known for his passion for combining colors and textures to produce playful pieces with personality. It is designed on an individual scale, thinking in the context of Covid-19, with five screens housed in individual compartments within a circular structure made of transparent yellow plastic.
But the most impressive view of the cinema is from above. Paulsen painted the ceiling with a mixture of bright colors that blend into one another, a striking juxtaposition with the black and white geometry of the surrounding plaza.
“It’s important to do something that creates a positive environment,” says Paulsen. “You could say that the design follows a modernist architectural tradition with the addition of contemporary colors and the context of Covid-19.” The cinema will be open 24 hours a day until October 12, and access to the documentaries is completely free and open to the public; no need to buy tickets.
