Out Now: "Streetscapes"

Streetscapes [Dialogue]

Heinz Emigholz' four films entitled "Streetscapes", which premiered as part of this year's Forum programme, can be seen in selected cinemas as of now. 2+2=22 [The Alphabet] (Germany 2017, 88') is a documentary of the recording sessions for the album ABC by German electronic music group Kriedler in Tblisi, Georgia. Sequences in the sound studio alternate with 26 street scenes and 26 views of the director’s notebooks. An event at the Casa do Povo cultural centre in São Paulo forms the starting point for Emigholz’s exploration of the architecture of Samuel Bickels, who designed numerous kibbutz buildings and museums in Israel from the 1950s into the 1970s: Bickels [Socialism] (Germany/Israel 2017, 92'). Streetscapes [Dialogue] (Germany 2017, 132') is a fictionalised dialogue between a film director and his therapist, based on the protocols of Emigholz’s own psychoanalysis sessions and filmed in buildings by Julio Vilamajó, Eladio Dieste and Arno Brandlhuber in Uruguay und Berlin. Dieste [Uruguay] (Germany 2017, 95') is documentary about 28 buildings by Uruguayan architect and master of thin shell structures Eladio Dieste, supplemented in a prologue by views of three buildings by Julio Vilamajó constructed in Montevideo in the 1930s.
