Cathedrals of Culture | 2015

Foreign, Documentary
Six iconic cultural buildings are examined by six international directors in this omnibus.


Six iconic and very different cultural buildings are the focus of six international filmmakers, revealing a great deal about human life. Each of the acclaimed filmmakers brings their own style to the project. They show us that the buildings are material manifestations of human thought and action. We explore how each of these landmarks -- a concert hall, a library, a research institute, a prison, a cultural center and an opera house -- reflects our culture and guards our collective memory.
