About The Event

  

Architectural surroundings create atmospheres; Atmospheres are ontologically puzzling: a surplus, a not-really-there, an in-between state, a feeling that is somehow nowhere. Atmosphere brings together a range of elements we would tend to call ephemeral: sound, temperature, emotional affect, a surround of objects, the flow of movement, a blur between the interior and exterior. More specifically, atmosphere amounts to the idea of architecture as surrounding - as something that envelops, and resonates as the inhabited environment.

In recent years, the debate of sensory qualities has extended to topics related to augmented realities to such phenomena as immersion or presence. However, in this curated event, atmosphere is examined as a valid dimension of film. Something that is both everywhere (delocated) and, at the same time, operating on one's skin, eyes, and ears.

The event consists of curated film lineup with educational lectures concerning architecture of atmospheres in film.

Some of the films included in the series:

  • Last Year at Marienbad (Alan Resnais, 1961)
  • The Green Widow (Jaakko Pakkasvirta, 1968)
  • Man With a Movie Camera (Dziga Vertov, 1929)
  • Suspiria (Dario Argento, 1977)
  • Metropolis (Fritz Lang, 1927)
