24th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
This portrait of architect Carlo Mollino looks at the vision of organizing space, buildings or sculptures. Contours and surfaces, as well as the absence present in crossed-out notes, crumpled sketches and the shapes and textures of material and scratched patters of houses, construct a rhythmic collage of expressions to the landscape.
“By way of story, C. Mollino pledged himself to his craft and foreshadowed a brilliant lifetime of architecture. In telling this story, Domus configures its author’s own intentions, transposed from architecture and housed within cinema.” R. Vermette
Rhayne Vermette (1982) is a Canadian documentary filmmaker, programmer and animator. Her work often combines her two greatest interests: architecture and animation. Her 16mm films question the traditional view of the documentary form by inserting elements of Surrealism and decadence into seemingly ordinary scenes. In 2012, the Ji.hlava IDFF showed her fi lm Tudor Village: A One Shot Deal (2012).
