The Built World

May 04

(Thom Andersen, 2012, Portugal/USA, HD, 65 min)

Saturday, May 04 at 08:00PM

Thom Andersen is the sort of director that film professors teach classes about, and with Reconversão he uses his legendary visual precision to document another legend: Portuguese architect Eduardo Soutu de Moura. Studying the life of de Moura's finished and unfinished projects over time, Andersen's indulgent camerawork highlights the bond between each structure and its natural environment, playing off the architect's declaration that "if there is nothing there, I invent a pre-existence." Much more than a history about beautiful buildings, Reconversão explores the place that those buildings occupy between the earth and its natural relationship with time.
