15.45 – 17.45, Tuesday 11 November, Phoenix Cinema, Falmouth

“If buildings could talk, what would they say about us?”  This 3D film project, consisting of six short films of 26 minutes each, lets six iconic and very different buildings speak for themselves, examining human life from the unblinking perspective of a manmade structure and allowing the audience to inhabit and experience the spaces in a unique way.  Six acclaimed filmmakers (Wim Wenders, Michael Glawogger, Michael Madsen, Robert Redford, Margareth Olin, Karim Ainouz) each bring their own visual style and artistic approach to the project.  The Berlin Philharmonic, an icon of modernity; the National Library of Russia, a kingdom of thoughts; Halden Prison, the world’s most humane prison; the Salk Institute, an institute for breakthrough science; the Oslo Opera House, a futuristic symbiosis of art and life; and the Centre Pompidou, a modern culture machine.  Cathedrals of Culture explores how each of these landmarks reflects our culture and guards our collective memory.

This screening includes the following films:

Michael Glawogger: National Library – St. Petersburg, Russia

Robert Redford: Salk Institute – La Jolla, California, USA

Margreth Olin: Opera House – Oslo, Norway
