New Shorts #11 The Architecture of Re-Assurance

New Shorts #11 The Architecture of Re-Assurance

Mon 9 Jan 18:15 Hackney Picturehouse

Architecture is all around us, both in the city we live in and in more remote areas. It defines our existence at work, at home and at play. This selection of short films puts architecture at the forefront, with documentary-style  and experimental portraits. We see Dubai as an unfinished post-apocalyptic city in the spectacular Mirage; a Scottish new-town built for a non-existent population that never came in A Thousand Trees; and the cottage home of an elderly lady who has to adapt to her remote surroundings as she gets older in The Folly.
 
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with the filmmakers and other guests from the world of architecture, in association with Passenger Films. Passenger Films are a film enterprise, made up of researchers and film fans, which brings hot topics from cultural geography to the film-going communities of London. Monthly events combine screenings with think tanks, discussions, speakers, and drinks.
