The Infinite Happiness is a feature-length documentary by filmmakers Ila Bêka and Louise Lamoine. The film follows them as they spend 21 days in and among the apartments and tenants of the "8 House".
The two explore, investigate, interview and experience the lives of those living and working in this postmodern dwelling.
The "8 house" is a mixed-use housing development in Ørstad, Copenhagen desinged by the Bjark Ingels Group. Shaped in the figure 8 it mixes residential and commercial and office space in what Ingels describes as "Architectural Alchemy".
