A film by Christina Condak
In collaboration with Toxic Dreams (Yosi Wanunu and Michael Stromann)
POINT 0 is an oral history film done with a twist: architects reflect on their initiations into the culture of architecture education in a kind of ritual performance. Asked to recall vivid memories and relevant experiences from their education, they perform a few physical actions and tell their stories. Although filmed in front of a neutral background, specificities quickly emerge: a wide range of responses are juxtaposed, revealing essential preoccupations within three generations of architects. This is not just text as information: you see the person and you hear their story.
This film is a special collaboration between an architect and a theater team, which led to its unique quality. It is accessible to anyone interested in making and thinking.
