After “Torre David” last summer, “Movies In Wonderland” continues the dialogue with the UTT and this year shows the journey “Gran Horizonte”, which with a series of different places and micro-stories from all around the world draws the public along through a series of fascinating portrayals of people and the places they live in. A possible answer to the questions posed in “Gran Horizonte” is portrayed by the short video “Empower Shack”, an upgrading project by UTT in the South African townships.
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.
