ARCCADD ARCHITECTURE INC // ARCHITECTURE + FILM

Clear your calendars in February for the upcoming film RECONVERSÃO proudly sponsered by the Winnipeg Architecture Foundation and Arccadd Architecture Inc.

“Reconversão portrays 17 buildings and projects by Portuguese architect Eduardo Souto Moura, accompanied usually by his own writings. It is a search for his architecture, without critical commentary. Only the tour guide at Braga Stadium offers generalizations, which fit that work well enough, but it may be the exception, not the rule. Souto Moura has the last word: “If there is nothing there, I invent a pre-existence.” Technically, Reconversão combines the crudeness of proto-cinema with the hyperrealism of digital cinema, bringing us back to the ideals of Dziga Vertov. Shooting only one or two frames per second and animating the images, in the manner of Muybridge, produces greater resolution, although not necessarily a greater sense of reality, and brings attention to the movements of water and vegetation that generally pass unnoticed.”

ACROSS THE STREET

Winnipeg’s newest boutique hotel, Mere, has turned up the heat on this cold winter day with colour changing flood lights!

WINTER IS HERE

Winnipeggers are beginning to feel the familiar bite of a new winter setting in. If you are looking for something to do on a cold winter evening, may I suggest you take in a film over at Cinematheque? Check out ARCHITECTURE+FILM, a series of “films which focus on architecture and design”.
