Public discussion with film-maker Ella Raidel
“Double Happiness” is a filmed journey through China, where a clone of the picturesque town of Hallstatt in Upper Austria has been built as a real estate project. A duplicated happiness develops in parallel worlds of original and copy, reality and fiction, dream and reality.
Movies in Wonderland
Architecture with/out Architects?
Architecture film festival in the Az W courtyard
13.08.2014 – 23.08.2014
Following on the success of the film nights last summer, this year “Movies in Wonderland“ and the Az W take a close look at the role of architecture – and consequently of those who make architecture – using current international films. Does architecture in fact still play a major role in present-day tendencies and developments? Does the master plan that everything must comply with still exist? And if not, what is then the issue? What constitutes the identity of a place? How much originality can be found in the copy of an entire village? Will the “star architect” be followed by the “citizen architect”? This summer the public again has an opportunity to discuss questions about the city and architecture with planners and film-makers from throughout the world.
