A Few Film Highlights
75 min / 2016 / France
Directed by Ila Bêka & Louise Lemoine

Voyage autour de la Lune is an urban diary which draws the lines of an emotional and psychological map of the city of Bordeaux along the renewed river banks, once called the "Moon Harbour" for the large curve with which the Garonne River embraces the city.
Using cinematic language, the film takes us along the tumultuous river's ebbs and flows, and drifts into the intimate turmoils of the
people during the journey, portraying the city through a collection of personal stories.

Facing up to Mackintosh
(US Premiere)
60 min / 2014 / UK
Directed by Louise Lockwood
 
Charles Rennie Mackintosh's design for The Glasgow School of Art is renowned worldwide. New York-based Steven Holl Architects was given the daunting task of creating a new building to sit opposite Mackintosh's masterpiece.

Filmed over three years, Facing up to Mackintosh charts the design and construction of the new design school, now named the Reid Building, and explores how a building can affect the people working in it. The film was completed just weeks before a tragic fire destroyed parts of the Mackintosh building including the iconic library, which was the inspiration for the Reid Building.
