The Human Shelter

What makes a home?

When does a refugee camp become a home? Is it possible to live in a tree? Documentary director Boris B. Bertram travelled four continents over two years in an anthropological expedition to find out how people live. So what do you think makes a home?

Watch The Human Shelter at IKEA Museum and follow a journey around the world to investigate what people need in their lives and how they create a home, wherever they are. The Human Shelter is directed by Boris B. Bertram and produced by Good Company Pictures with financial support from IKEA Group and IKEA of Sweden.

The film is showing daily at IKEA Museum until 12 June 2019.
