Unfinished Italy
Dir. Benoit Felici
ITA, 2011, 32 min

Italy, land of the unfinished buildings. Building ruins as failed projects, testament to the fact that ideas that can be larger than people. And yet the abandoned concrete skeletons are a sign of an almost ludicrous sense of optimism. People do not give up on their ideas. Instead of demolishing incomplete constructions, they just start anew somewhere else! The award-winning film takes a light-hearted approach in examining this peculiar Italian phenomenon.

Sauerbruch Hutton Architects
Dir. Harun Farocki
GER, 2013, 73 min

Talk, draw, cut, paste, talk. A team of architects and designers struggling with ideas and their articulation. All the while, their eyes are on models, sketches and patterns in the space before them. With a concentrated cinematic minimalism, documentary filmmaker Harun Farocki portrays Berlin architecture office Sauerbruch Hutton, giving tangible expression to their creative process that is fleeting and abstract.

Away From All Suns!
Dir. Isa Willinger
GER, 2013, 77 min

Moscow’s side streets hold forgotten treasures: utopian constructivist architecture. The ruins of an alternative future. The film follows three Muscovites confronting the legacy of these buildings. Do these buildings bear a message for us? A travel in time, to the revolutionary 1920s and back into contemporary Russia.
