2014 yowLAB film festival announces first 2 films

We’re pleased to announce the first two architecture documentaries for our experiment in distributed film festival. The idea is to watch the film at home or with friends and then participate in an online review and discussion. We will also be timing each of the films to align with a yowLAB PubNight in case you prefer to discuss in person.

Both documentaries for March/April are available for online rental through vimeo.

March 20 – Mendelsohn’s Incessant Visions
Facebook Event Page

“This award-winning creative homage, illuminates the life of German Jewish Expressionist architect Erich Mendelsohn. The visionary Mendelsohn, a contemporary of Walter Gropius and Mies van der Rohe, produced works that have influenced generations of architects. His story unfolds through the letter exchange with Louise, a beautiful young cellist , who became his wife. The film gently breathes life into the correspondence of two passionate artists who helped each other weather a turbulent time in history.”

April 17 – Microtopia
Facebook Event Page

“How would you feel about carrying your home in your pocket or having clothes to live in? For most of us, “house” means stability, structure, and permanence. In an age of increasing population and technological gains, today’s mobile society has resulted in a demand, or perhaps a dream, for portable dwellings and dwellings in new settings and situations.”
