Digging the Suez Canal with a Teaspoon (2019)
Dir: David Stairs
Runtime: 80 min
An introspective on design’s role with philanthropies. This documentary film that investigates the pros and cons of what has come to be called the “social design space.” This in itself is a bit of a misnomer, as clearly all design requires some sort of social contract, but the term has come into universal use from a need to differentiate design’s civil society and community characteristics from its commercial aspects.
