For our readers in Rotterdam we got something special to attend,
during the International Film Festival :
As a ‘science fiction documentary’, this portrait of a futuristic city is narrated by one of its inhabitants. The twist is that all the images in this found-footage film come from architecture, science and technology of the present day.
The future is already here.!
In many ways this is a follow up to Bush’s 1996 short film ‘The Rumour of True Things,’ now with a minimalist narrative thread running through the accumulation of high-tech imagery. Two lovers try to communicate, one from within, the other outside the city. Eurydice regained ?
Thu 26-1 to Sun 29-1, 10:00-17:00, Fri until 20:00 and Sun from 11:00,
Netherlands Architecture Institute, Museumpark 25.
The city is already so vast and growing at such a speed that soon light itself will not escape its gravitational pull. How then can two lovers communicate, one from inside the city the other outside? This is an elegy to urban life, a portrait of a city of the future, constructed from moving images collected all around the world from science, technology, industry and architecture.
