Film and book It’s Never Too Late to Say Sorry

The short documentary, It’s Never Too Late to Say Sorry, about the much-discussed artwork on the Coolsingel by the artist duo Elmgreen and Dragset, has its world premiere at the IFFR. It will be followed by the launch of the publication 366 Sorry-rapporten (366 Sorry Reports), written by Wim Konings – the man who decried daily for a year at the stroke of midday, ‘It is never too late to say sorry!’, as an appeal to the city and passers-by. Nowadays, he only makes this call on Wednesdays. Elmgreen and Dragset will be present for the evening via Skype.
