Description

FREE ADMISSION. Presented by the Goethe Institute. Co-presented by the Architectural Conservancy of Ontario: Waterloo Branch

Part of our Art, Design & Architecture Series

2015’s Goethe Documentary Film Prize winner is Concrete Love: The Böhm Family. The German film, directed by Maurizius Staerkle-Drux, follows the daily routine of 93-year old architect Gottfried Böhm, documenting interactions with his family (and colleagues) and the inspiration for his work. It delves into the lifelong fervor Böhm has developed for design, family, and life. The jury acclaims, "the film tells a multi-layered tale of love, the passion for architecture and four generations of German history. With sensitive observations, intimate interviews and stirring filmic explorations of an extraordinary architectural legacy, the film creates a lasting impression of the buildings and the people.”

The annual 2,000-euro prize is awarded by the Goethe-Institut at the International Leipzig Festival for Documentary and Animated Film. Participating films must appertain to Germany, while simultaneously appealing to international audiences by addressing a universal theme.
