Still from "Dave Made a Maze"

Dave Made a Maze, a feature-length film that premiered last month at the Slamdance Festival in Park City, Utah, features a living room fort made of cardboard that, when entered, turns out to be a fantastical world with booby traps and monsters.

We spotted the film at the Architect's Newspaper's roundup of architectural films from Sundance/Slamdance. Its appeal to architects is obvious, not only in how constructed spaces are a main component of the film, but in how the sets appear to be entirely handmade. Architects who have toiled over models will no doubt appreciate the care and imagination that is present in Dave Made a Maze.
