Journey into the life and work of the defining figure in Scandic design and one of the greatest modern architects, Alvar Aalto. Recounting the intimate yet tragic love story he shared with his architect wife, Aino, the film provides a cinematic tour of their creative process and iconic buildings all over the world. Narrated by experts in the field and featuring never-before-seen archival footage, AALTO reveals unique insight into an extraordinary couple whose profoundly humanist vision put people at the center of design.
Written and directed by award-winning Finnish filmmaker Virpi Suutari, AALTO had its world premiere at the Reykjavik International Film Festival.
