Trudo Vertical Forest a Ecofor Cinefestival

From May 7th to 9th, the Ecofor Cinefestival Prize is held in Pontedera (PI) as part of the EcoDays event, featuring the selected documentary “Trudo Vertical Forest – a journey into the world’s first social housing Vertical Forest.” This documentary narrates the experience of creating the first Vertical Forest in social housing in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, designed by Stefano Boeri Architetti and inaugurated on September 30th, 2021.

The festival aims to reward and promote the production of short films of all categories (from short films to commercials) that address the themes of ecology, sustainability, environmental communication, and ethically responsible consumption.

Designed primarily to accommodate a low-income audience – such as young professionals and students – the Eindhoven tower houses apartments with controlled rents but of high living quality. The complex vision of “housing” coexistence between humans and other species is thus amplified in the project as a dual challenge: the possibility of uniting the great challenge of the environmental crisis with the urgent need for accessible housing in contemporary cities. The documentary by The Blink Fish (directed by Stefano Santamato and produced by Paolo Soravia) recounts – through in-depth insights and interviews with project protagonists – the development of the building, which has become a new architectural icon in the Eindhoven skyline.
