REM: A Film Screening and Q & A with director, Tomas Koolhaas

Tuesday, March 13 @ 5:00 p.m. 
Milstein Hall, Auditorium

Synopsis: 

Architecture is usually filmed from the outside, as an inanimate object. The few depictions of interiors are usually limited to still or static images of an empty building, reducing it to no more than an icon or sculpture. "REM" uses an unconventional approach by combining the human stories and experience of both the architect and the users of his architecture. The film explores Rem’s life, working methods, philosophy and internal landscape, from a never seen perspective of intimacy and immediacy. The result is having the feeling of being "inside" his head. This perspective allows the viewer to understand Rem’s ideas in a way they couldn’t otherwise. These ideas are not merely explained as intellectual concepts but the viewer also sees these ideas in practice -the reality on the ground. They see how these ideas come to fruition in concrete and metal. The film shows how these structures, some massive and some small—dotted all around the globe—affect every aspect of the lives of the people that build them, use them, and live inside them.
