Housewarming screening #2

Saturday 14 December, 6pm

Eric Rohmer, L’ami de mon amie, 1987.

As part of its inaugural exhibition, Housewarming, Maison Touchard presents the second iteration of a series of two screenings.

Housewarming is a group exhibition that explores the dichotomy between the utopian principles of Modernist architecture – the moralistic ideals of purity, transparency, light, and function – and its failed and rebellious legacies; namely within the prescriptive urban renewal and public housing schemes that began to appear en masse in the second half of the 20th century.

Programme:

Eric Rohmer, L’ami de mon amie (1987) – 1h42 mins

A series of entangled love stories set in the satellite city of Cergy-Pontoise, partly designed by Argentine architect Ricardo Bofill.

“In a Rohmer movie, the physical world, including architecture, describes the life of the mind.” Vincent Canby
