UNITY TEMPLE | documentary

Friday 27th Nov. | 20H

Frank Lloyd Wright’s Modern Masterpiece, Unity Temple is an homage to America’s most renowned architect.

The film pulls back the curtain on Wright’s first public commission in the early 1900’s to the painstaking efforts to restore the 100 year old building back to its original beauty. The dedicated team of historians, craftspeople, members of the Unitarian congregation and Unity Temple Restoration Foundation reveal the history of one of Wright’s most innovative buildings that merged his love of architecture with his own spiritual values.

The film intersperses the architect’s philosophies with quotes narrated by Brad Pitt.

The film screening in Urania is a part of the “Smarter City” programme.

“Smarter City” is a multi-year project, initiative and public event (conferences, workshops, film screenings, exhibitions) produced and organised by Shadow Casters and associated partners (Urania, Cinematheque, DAZ, FRU, Supervizuelna, Greta Gallery, Wall Displays Project) whose goal is to explore the various possibilities of the city’s resources with participatory and collective energy of togetherness and exchange, and to compare and oppose opinions on what today, in a situation of complete social impoverishment, media saturation and lack of social planning, can make the city smarter, more beautiful for life, more useful for all citizens.
