“The Bauhaus Spirit” is an engaging documentary that celebrates 100 years since the founding of the Weimar school of architecture and design, exploring the history, present and future of the utopian ideas born then, ideas that still have a significant impact on the way we live today. The film introduces us to artists and architects who, in an attempt to respond to current challenges, are inspired by the principles of the Bauhaus movement. Thus, the story of this unfinished utopian project unfolds before us, being shaped around some questions that are still current: How do we want to live and where are we going?
