Antonio Gaudi (XIV week with AFG film club)
1984, Japan, 72 min, Documentary, DVD
Director: Hiroshi Teshigahara
Stars: Isidro Puig Boada, Seiji Miyaguchi
Catalan architect Antonio Gaudí (1852–1926) designed some of the world’s most astonishing buildings, interiors, and parks; Japanese director Hiroshi Teshigahara constructed some of the most aesthetically audacious films ever made. Here their artistry melds in a unique, enthralling cinematic experience. Less a documentary than a visual poem, Teshigahara’s Antonio Gaudí takes viewers on a tour of Gaudí’s truly spectacular architecture, including his massive, still-unfinished masterpiece, the Sagrada Familia cathedral in Barcelona. With camera work as bold and sensual as the curves of his subject’s organic structures, Teshigahara immortalizes Gaudí on film.
* Free Admission. All films are in original language with English subtitles.
