2017 Advent Calendars – Day 11 – City, Friends & Star Wars

Yesterday was a pretty good day, let down by an odd Friends build. Hopefully today we can get three out of three.

LEGO Brickumentary Available On SBS On Demand

Last night SBS broadcast the LEGO Documentary “A LEGO Brickumentary” and unfortunately I missed it. If you also missed it you may be pleased to learn that it is now available to watch via the SBS catch-up service SBS On Demand.

The 2014 film, narrated by Jason Bateman, explores the world of LEGO like never before including a look at the world of AFOLs.

Here’s the official synopsis: Oscar winning Director Daniel Junge and Oscar nominated Director Kief Davidson take us on a journey through the Lego universe… like you have never seen before. They explore the brick that has captured imaginations for generations and look at the fundamental question…is it a toy or something more? The program delves into the extraordinary impact of the Lego brick and the innovative uses for it that have sprung up all over the world. The film takes us to art galleries full of Lego creations, introduces us to Master Builders making movies, into the world of Lego therapy, and brings us along to meet AFOLS (Adult Fans of Lego), each with amazing stories to tell.

You can watch it online here, or there are SBS On Demand apps for a wide variety of devices. You will need to create a free SBS account to watch. The film expires in 13 days, so watch it before Christmas if you get a chance.
