(Ila Bêka and Louise Lemoine, France, 2011, 48 min)
Sunday, Jul 21 at 07:00PM
French filmmakers Ila Bêka and Louise Lemoine's smart and funny "Living Architectures" film series counters the countless ideal representations of architecture by creating intimate, subjective experiences with the people who actually live in, use, or maintain the spaces. The latest in this series, Gehry's Vertigo, provides a unique perspective on the complexity of architect Frank Gehry's iconic Guggenheim Museum of Bilbao by documenting the techniques and challenges of its team of glass cleaners. The film includes rarely-seen views from the top roofs and along harrowing ascents.
