The viewing device is loosely based on furniture in Le Corbusier's Chapel Notre Dame du Haut in Ronchamp, France (1950-1955). The metal rail facing the monitor is intended to be used to sit on or lean against.

 

On screen: Blow Out (The Film), 2016

The Film constructed a densely woven web of associations with a cast of characters that includes actresses, architects, film directors and philosophers in a constant temporal displacement, yet somehow all connected to the decaying building on the Sardinian coast.

Christopher Roth will present his Pilgrim Viewer (in collaboration with Sam Chermaye and Arno Brandlhuber) and Blow Out (The Film).

 

Blow Out (The Film) was largely shot in and around the architect Dante Bini’s La Cupola, a dome-like structure built for the Italian modernist filmmaker Michelangelo Antonioni and his lover the actress Monica Vitti. The film evokes the building’s history—built for a couple that split up before its completion—as three women appear to visit the site, vanish and reappear.
