The short documentary will take place on Monday 26 January at 20.00 It's Never Too Late To Say Sorry, about the much-discussed work of art by artist duo Elmgreen & Dragset on Coolsingel, his world premiere at IFFR. Subsequently, the publication 366 Sorry reports presented, written by Wim Konings, the man who spent a year every day at noon, "It's never too late to say sorry!" cried; an appeal to the city and passers-by. Nowadays he only calls on Wednesday. Artist duo Elmgreen & Dragset will be present via Skype this evening.

Artist Marieke van der Lippe made the documentary It's Never Too Late to Say Sorry for Sculpture International Rotterdam (SIR), the organization responsible for the international art and public space program, including on the Coolsingel. The documentary is shown in LantarenVenster as one of the four Short Specials, which are part of IFFR's short film program As Long As It Takes.

This festive evening consists of a Skype conversation with the creators of the artwork - Elmgreen & Dragset, the screening of the film and the presentation of the book 366 Sorry reports, written by Wim Konings and designed by Simon Davies. Wim Konings reads some of his reports from the book; Dees Linders lifts a tip of the veil around an enigmatic object that pops up repeatedly in the document and in the book and there are conversations led by Ernest van der Kwast with the many people involved with the film and the book.
