Precise Poetry

Australian Premiere

Film: Precise Poetry: The Architecture of Lina Bo Bardi

2013, Dir.Belinda Rukschcio, 53:27mins. Portuguese, English subtitled

“I AM AN ARCHITECT. I BREAK WALLS!”

A film about the famous Italian-Brazilian architect Lina Bo Bardi, who created poetry through architectural precision. Told in a series of interviews in Portuguese with English subtitles on the eve of her 100th birthday, Bo Bardi’s colleagues and friends recount the sociopolitical constraints and personal events that would lead to the timelessness of her work.

This cinematic journey through her most important architectural projects in São Paulo and Salvador da Bahia poses the question of what remains of a person in the work they leave behind.

Animation: 31 Trellick Tower

2015, Dir.Hilow, 2 mins

Erno Goldfinger’s Trellick Tower dominates the skyline in Notting Hill and Westbourne Park and is known to the local community as “The Beast” – It’s one of the most recognisable Brutalist building in the UK. Despite it’s iconic status very few people have been inside the building or the estate and this short film aims to open up the building and make it more accessible through the bridging of two complementary cultures, skateboarding and architecture.
