AIA FILM FESTIVAL!
After more than a week of no posts (sorry), the OFFScreen blog is back to tell you to check out this:
The American Institute of Architects Film Festival is here (well, it's been here since last saturday).
Everyday this week there will be films held around town about the exciting world of architecture, design, and sustainability. (Can you tell I'm an A-schooler?)
Today @ Noon
Brown Bag Lunch at the Charlottesville Community Design Center on the Downtown Mall
Regular or Super: Views on Mies van der Rohe by Patrick Demers & Jeffrey Hillel
Running time: 56 mins. (Perfect for that lunch break)
'Featuring stylish cinematography and an evocative jazz score, REGULAR OR SUPER illustrates many of Mies' classic buildings, combining these striking facades with observations from some architecture superstars, including Rem Koolhaas, Elizabeth Diller and Phyllis Lambert, which are interlaced with anecdotes from customers and neighbors of the gas station, plus comments from his biographer and family members.'
If you have the time or work downtown you should definitely check it out
Tomorrow, same time same place, there will be a documentary on the work of Renzo Piano.
