ADFF:ONLINE is a way for the architecture and design community to remain engaged and experience specially-curated films during this “shelter-at-home” period. We hope this new online venue will serve as a virtual space for the professional design industry - and the broader community - to be together. 

The live streaming program will start at 8:00 pm ET with an introduction by ADFF Founder Kyle Bergman. Then the feature film, James Hubbell - Between Heaven and Earth, will be screened, followed by a Q&A with the film’s director, Marianne Gerdes. The entire program will be about 90 minutes. ADFF will replay the program again at 8:00 pm PT. 

James Hubbell - Between Heaven and Earth
Director: Marianne Gerdes
2019 / 66 min / USA

James Hubbell has been driven to have a conversation with the world, using his art and his architecture to give flight to his deepest beliefs. A life lived in harmony with the environment that surrounds his southern California mountain home has inspired works so exquisite they’ve been commissioned for churches, synagogues, parks, even a palace. He synthesizes tile, glass, iron, clay and stone together to work in support of each other. Everything from a door handle to a window, from a wall to a roof, becomes part of the artistic expression. Hubbell’s creations say things he can’t express in words. Inspired by nature and filled with humanity, at age 87, his is a quiet, yet compelling voice of an artist who shows us that power has nothing to do with how old you are, or how big you are, or how strong you are, and that creativity transcends everything.
