Architecture in Film II: Brutal Beauty

Arkitekturfilm 2: Brutal skjønnhet

Arkitektur inspirerer filmskapere til å leke med tid, rom og opplevelse. I det andre av to spesialprogrammer ser Kortfilmfestivalen nærmere på brutalistisk arkitektur i
samtida, i kjølvannet av debattn rundt Y-blokka i Oslo. Del én av programmet finner du her:

De fire filmene er vidt forskjellige i uttrykk og omfang. Thomas Draschans "Wotruba", Karl-Heinz Klopfz "Testa" og Petra Noordkamps "La Madre, Il Figlio e l’Architetto" handler alle om enkeltbygninger: en kirke i Wien, nasjonalbiblioteket i Buenos Aires i Argentina, og en kirke på Sicilia. Paul Tunge og Egil Håskjold Larsens "Bauta" skildrer en rekke modernistiske bygg tegnet av norske arkitekter – og avsluttes i regjeringskvartalet i Oslo.
