EMOTIONAL ARCHITECTURE 1959
The power of architecture is explored with subtlety and nuance in Emotional Architecture 1959, a film centering on the courtship of two philosophy students in Madrid. Director León Siminiani investigates how design decisions affect the daily lives of everyone in the city, regardless of socioeconomic status or political affiliation. Architecture opens up the door to the characters’ relationship and influences their lives in ways even they do not totally understand.
SOVIET BUS STOPS
Soviet Bus Stops accompanies Canadian photographer Christopher Herwig on his decades-long bus stop treasure hunt across the former Soviet Union. Herwig journeys from Ukraine to Uzbekistan, Armenia to Far Eastern Siberia, looking for the fascinating architectural marvels that are Soviet-era bus stops. His journey covers over 50,000 kilometers and shows us the high caliber of creativity that can emerge even in the context of a totalitarian regime. Based on a book by the same name, Soviet Bus Stops introduces us to some of the humble and charming bus stop creators who designed small acts of poetry against all odds.
Ticket buyers are invited to attend a private happy hour reception in the ADFF lounge preceding the screening, beginning at 7:15 PM on Friday (2/2) and 6:45 PM on Saturday (2/3).
