In this miniature documentary, a Copenhagen-based filmmaker explores one of the world's toughest questions: How do you feel about art?
Last year, the wonderful Fifty People One Question project, a finalist in the first annual Vimeo Awards for creativity and innovation in online video, was among my most-loved articles all year, and for good reason--a beautifully simple premise, even more beautifully executed, peeling away at the most authentic of human sentiments about life. Now, a new microdocumentary by Copenhagen-based filmmaker Christian Svanes Kolding takes a similar approach to a much more niche topic: art. The descriptively titled How Do You Feel (About Art)? asks New Yorkers for a three-word answer to the seemingly simple question, only to reveal the rich complexity of art's impact on the human psyche.
