NÜDEL KART MOVIE
THE WHEELS OF WONDER DOCUMENTARY
This project was led by Marcus Veerman, (founder and CEO of Playground Ideas), and Matt Green (Designer and Implementer at Playground Ideas). It was documented by Roger Ungers, who has produced this feature length film The Wheels of Wonder.
Despite plenty of planning, the group were faced with numerous challenges while constructing and trialling the Nüdel Kart prototype with the city’s refugee children. The film documents the making of the Nüdel Kart and how it was received by the children who were given the opportunity to use it. Along with highlighting the importance of play, The Wheels of Wonder also shines a light on the immense challenges facing those who have been forcibly displaced, combining politics with uplifting moments of strength and resilience in the face of adversity.
UPDATE: Since filming, this area was obliterated by the devastating explosion on August 4th 2020 that killed at least 207 people and left 300,000 homeless.
