Architecture+Film: Columbus
Fri, Nov 17 / 7 pm
“Columbus” treats architecture like music, as its protagonists write, talk, bicker, and dance about an extraordinary collection of modernist structures in the unassuming Midwest town of Columbus, Ind. The hypnotically paced drama carried by the serendipitous odd-couple pairing of John Cho and Haley Lu Richardson is lovely and tender, marking Kogonada as an auteur to watch. (Variety)

“In her magnificent, groundbreaking, nearly 60-year career, this is one of Agnes Varda's (Cleo from 5 to 7, Vagabond, The Gleaners and I) most profoundly personal works. A tour de France that is both a romp and a meditation on photography, cinema, and mortality, with brief appearances by Mimi, the scene-stealing cat, it is at once poetry and the naked truth, shape-shifting before one’s eyes, and promising ever more pleasure with each viewing.” — Amy Taubin, Film Comment. *Winner of Best Documentary at the 2017 Cannes Festival
