Architecture & Design Film Festival returns to NYC
The upcoming Architecture & Design Film Festival, which will return to New York’s Tribeca Cinemas next month for its highly anticipated sixth season will host the U.S. premiere of Cathedrals of Culture, a revolutionary 3D film project by German filmmaker Wim Wenders.
The project brings together six award-winning directors–a powerful creative ensemble–each of whom have selected an iconic building to star in their films. The international roster includes: The Salk Institute by Robert Redford; The Oslo Opera House by Margreth Olin; The Berlin Philharmonic by Wim Wenders; Centre Pompidou by Karim Aïnouz; Halden Prison byMichael Madsen; and The National Library of Russia by Michael Glawogger.
The question at the heart of the project is simple yet polemic: If buildings could talk, what would they say about us? Cathedrals of Culture offers six startling responses, telling a compelling narrative from the perspective of six landmark buildings while exercising the immersive potential of 3D. The festival will present the films in pairs of three curated programmess, accompanied by director Q&As and lively discussions about architecture as a mirror for society.
In addition, the festival will also see the world premiere of Marco Orsini’s captivating documentary, Gray Matters. The documentary is a companion piece to the forthcoming feature film, The Price of Desire, directed by Mary McGuckian, and is part of the Eileen Gray Project, which is tapping into various mediums to shed light on a pioneer of modernism that was almost erased from architectural history.
Architecture & Design Film Festival runs from October 15-19, 2014, at Tribeca Cinemas, 54 Varick Street, New York City. Tickets for the festival are on sale now at the Tribeca Cinemas Box Office and online at www.adfilmfest.com
