The Bamboo Dialogues is a feature-length documentary exploring the nature of the material and asking why are we not using more of it in contemporary design, engineering, and architecture? The film shows the possibilities and challenges for this miracle plant. Best bamboo practices are mostly found: off the beaten track; away from trendsetting metropolises; in remote, and peripheral locations.

The film’s narrative is told by “bamboo whisperers”: engineers, artisans, architects, designers, historians, biologists span five continents. Shot on location in Sweden, Italy, Indonesia, China, USA, Hong Kong, Papua New Guinea, Costa Rica, Taiwan, The Philippines, Uganda, Kenya, Qatar and the UK. The production of the film took more than three years and contains material that is contributed from a number of different sources.

Producer / Director: Johan Granberg will attend the screening introduce the film and answer questions about the production.
