Dry (Nic Wassell, 2011)

PASSENGERFILMS, UCL Urban Laboratory Film Society and Rushes Soho Shorts present a selection of new short films that put architecture at the forefront, with both documentary-style and experimental portraits.

CODIFIED SPACE, Justin Ascott, 5 mins

Architecture is a system of signs that structure patterns of social use, but what happens when a building falls into disuse and no longer serves the function for which it was originally intended?

DRY, Nic Wassell, 14 mins

A London-shot 16mm film about travel and memory, inspired by the Taiwanese films of Tsai Ming-liang.

THE FOLLY, Mira Aroyo, 15 mins

The cottage home of an elderly lady who has to adapt to her remote surroundings as she gets older.

MIRAGE, Srdan Keca, 42 mins

Dubai as an unfinished ‘post-apocalyptic’ city.

A THOUSAND TREES, Ed Lawrenson, 20 mins

A Scottish new-town built for a non-existent population that never came.

The screenings will be followed by a panel discussion with the filmmakers and Justin Jaeckle, Curator of Public Programmes at the Architecture Foundation, hosted by Ben Campkin, Director of the UCL Urban Laboratory, .

This is the first of a season of regular film screenings by PASSENGERFILMS and the UCL Urban Laboratory Film Society.

    Just saw this – thought “The Folly” was totally engaging and inspiring. The landscape reflected in and through the house beautifully filmed. Full of empathy. Thank you.
