Heinz Emigholz’s groundbreaking and spellbinding architectural films are cinematographic re-enactments of the immediate experience of spaces. The last film in Emigholz’s “Architecture as Autobiography” series and, following PARABETON, the second in his series the “Decampment of Modernism” is the first film ever made on French brothers Auguste and Gustave Perret, presenting 30 of their projects in chronological order. As in Emigholz’s PARABETON, which presents works by Italian Pier Luigi Nervi alongside Roman ruins, PERRET presents a delicious juxtaposition – between projects in France (up to the post-war reconstruction of Le Havre) and public buildings built in colonial Algeria.
