Catalan architect Antonio Gaudi (1852–1926) designed some of the world’s most astonishing buildings, interiors and parks. Japanese director Hiroshi Teshigahara constructed some of the most aesthetically audacious films ever made. Here their artistry melds in a unique, enthralling cinematic experience.
Less a documentary than a visual poem, Teshigahara’s Antonio Gaudi takes viewers on a tour of Gaudi’s truly spectacular architecture, including his massive, still-unfinished masterpiece, the Sagrada Familia cathedral in Barcelona. With camera work as bold and sensual as the curves of his subject’s organic structures, Teshigahara immortalizes Gaudi on film.
