Olafur Eliasson

Miracles of Rare Device

A 60 min imagine... film for BBC One, 2019
Tigerlily Productions

This documentary was filmed throughout the nine months leading up to Olafur Eliasson's ​landmark Tate Modern exhibition In real life in July 2019. Principally shot in London and at Olafur's studio in Berlin, home at the time to a team of over 120 assistants, the film also features extended sequences shot on location in his homeland of Denmark and his parents' home country of Iceland. As well as charting the creative processes behind putting on the huge retrospective, the documentary profiles several of Olafur's celebrated works from years past, including 'The weather project,' 'Ice Watch,' 'Beauty' and 'The glacier series.'
