2014 Arquiteturas Film Festival

Belinda Rukschcio, Austria/Germany (2013) 54′ PP

A film about famous Italian-Brazilian architect Lina Bo Bardi, who created poetry through architectural precision. Told in a series of interviews in Portuguese with English subtitles on the eve of her 100th birthday, Bo Bardi’s colleagues and friends recount the sociopolitical constraints and personal events that would lead to the timelessness of her work. This cinematic journey through her most important architectural projects in Säo Paulo and Salvador da Bahia poses the question of what remains of a person in the work they leave behind.

The director will be present for a Q&A after the screening.
