Film and architecture are inextricably linked. Both mediums involve space, time, and people, and both use narrative to explore the human predicament. Architects, like directors, turn fiction into reality. In this "mini film festival" spread over two days, renowned architects, educators, artists and filmmakers explore the fascinating overlaps, proximities and tensions between space, buildings, moving images and representation. Two panel discussions moderated by curator Lesley Lokko explore the complex and rich relationship between these two fascinating disciplines.
