Architecture+Design Film Festival: A Concrete Cinema

Fri, Sep 18 / 7 pm
Directed by Luz Ruciello
2017, Argentina, 77 min
Spanish with English subtitles

Omar the bricklayer, a real film buff, lives in a small village in Argentina. As there is no cinema in the village, the old man decides to build one himself. He toils alone for years to erect the structure from discarded materials on top of his house.Using a projector from the 1920s, he manages to screen classics for local villagers, who enjoy themselves to the full. A Concrete Cinema is an uplifting film about one man’s perseverance and his love of cinema. Subtle, atmospheric and congenial, a film that rekindles your faith in mankind.

Also available to rent via Cinematheque at Home.

Sponsored by Ken King Ottawa.
