Perret in France and Algeria
The Built World

May 05

(Heinz Emigholz, Germany, 2012, HD, 110 min)

Sunday, May 05 at 08:00PM

From Heinz Emigholzwho sits atop the list of directorial experts on architecture after making films about urban design for two decadescomes a movie that is both biography and cultural commentary, telling the story of architectural pioneer Auguste Perret's dual careers in Algeria and France. Many of the works that Perret describes are mired in history, including Parisian buildings destroyed (and later rebuilt by Perret) during World War II. A tale rather than a tour, Emigholz's stunning visual storytelling in Perret investigates the architect's relationship with the volatile societies where his designs came to life.
