IAAC Will Host REM Documentary's Premiere in Barcelona

We are proud to announce that, after a few selected, sold-out projections all over Europe, the Barcelona’s premiere of the film REM will take place at IAAC on February 27th. Filmed and directed by Tomas Koolhaas, the LA-based son of the architect, the documentary aims to take a peek inside the creative mind of Koolhaas, following him in his daily life and thoughts. The film also shows a different side to the architect’s most famous buildings and its inhabitants.
Tomas, who has been critical of films about architecture which are “made up of talking-head interviews interspersed by static, lifeless shots of empty structures,” suggested that REM would be “the first documentary to comprehensively explore the human conditions in and around OMA’s buildings.” The documentary, which took over 4 years of filming and research, not only reveals Rem’s life and working methods from an unprecedented ‘behind the scenes’ perspective, but gives the architecture greater meaning as the viewer witnesses the one thing that gives it a function and purpose – how it is used by people.
The event, which will be part of the Institute’s Lecture Series, will take place at IAAC Pujades 102, and will be followed by a Q&A session with the director. Find at this link more information about the screening and on how to reserve your seat. read more »
