The 53rd Chicago International Film Festival (October 12-26) is proud to partner with WTTW11 to present the broadcast of INFINITE HAPPINESS (Official Selection, 51st Chicago International Film Festival) on Thursday, August 31 at 10:30pm on WTTW11.

This is the second film of a 4-part film series featuring a diverse and impressive line-up of independent and foreign cinema selected from the past 50 years of the Festival.
Copenhagen’s “8 House,” an ultramodern loop of apartments by architect Bjarke Ingels, reinvents the concept of “home.” Its 500 residents traverse all nine floors by bike and hike on its lush green roofs. This exuberant documentary profiles the (mostly) happy residents, offering a hopeful, inspired picture of communal living by design. To view the film’s trailer.
