Architecture+Design Film Festival: Douglas Cardinal: Architect of the Future

Available to rent Sept 16-20
Directed by Andrée Cazabon,
2019, Canada, 30 min

This title is available to rent via Cinematheque at Home. This is not only an opportunity for our patrons to see new cinema, but is an important way that they can continue to support independent film during this pandemic with 50% of all sales supporting our theatre.

An Anishinaabe raised in Blackfoot territory, architect Douglas Cardinal’s curvilinear vision has produced instantly-recognizable monuments to Indigenous culture in the national capitals of both Canada and the United States. The film reveals how his Anishinaabe culture and Indigenous worldview fuel his creative genius. The film, written by his wife, Idoia and produced by Douglas Cardinal features his friend, world-renowned artist, Alex Janvier and their pledge to change Canada’s colonialism through their art.

This is a biographical film of the acclaimed architect and the Indigenous knowledge system he pays tribute to.


Now in its ninth year, the Architecture + Design Film Festival (A+DFF) presents critically acclaimed films focusing on the importance of architecture and design in everyday life. The films cover a range of design-oriented topics from architecture and urban design to graphics and product design. A+DFF is the only festival in Canada devoted solely to architecture and design. This festival is generously supported by The Manitoba Association of Architects, The Winnipeg Foundation, the Faculty of Architecture Endowment Fund (University of Manitoba), and presented in partnership with Urban Idea and the WFG Cinematheque.
