This film captures the competition for the head offices of the Nobel Centre in Stockholm, presented as a nail-biting thriller. Nobel Snowflake follows the Swedish architect Gert Wingårdh on his quest to find the ultimate design, in the shape of a snowflake. Eleven of the 175 teams are selected to take part, among them Wingårdh. That’s when the problems really start. Kajsa Andersö’s film shows all the tragic and amusing aspects of the prestigious competition, with an unexpected ending. An entertaining peek behind the scenes.
