Last chance to see Antonio Gaudi @ the Charles Theatre

The Charles Theatre’s Revival Series is bringing back the ever-popular ANTONIO GAUDÍ by Hiroshi Teshigahara for one screening this Thursday night.

Thursday, August 13 at 9 PM

ANTONIO GAUDÍ 1984 Hiroshi Teshigahara. 72m.

Catalan architect Antonio Gaudí (1852–1926) designed some of the world’s most astonishing buildings, interiors, and parks; Japanese director Hiroshi Teshigahara constructed some of the most aesthetically audacious films ever made. Here their artistry melds in a unique, enthralling cinematic experience. Less a documentary than a visual poem, Teshigahara’s Antonio Gaudí takes viewers on a tour of Gaudí’s truly spectacular architecture, including his massive, still-unfinished masterpiece, the Sagrada Familia cathedral in Barcelona. With camera work as bold and sensual as the curves of his subject’s organic structures, Teshigahara immortalizes Gaudí on film. (Criterion Collection)
