Architecture film and documentary festival Ark Rex is organised for the first time in November 2019
29–30 November 2019
Mannerheimintie 22–24, Helsinki
On November 29–30, 2019 Amos Rex is mounting a wide-ranging festival of architecture documentaries and films. Ark Rex will explore the Bauhaus Manifesto written by Walter Gropius in Weimar a century ago, and the legacy of the world-renowned Bauhaus school. It will examine the products of modernism and its most fascinating architects, not forgetting the Nordic angle. Besides documentaries that take us into the Bauhaus and its production, the festival will include dramatic films and films exploring current issues in the built environment. Apart from the silver screen, the two-day festival will stage talks providing background and more in-depth information.
The venue is a building in modernist spirit that heralded a new era in Helsinki, one of Finland’s finest cinemas, the Lasipalatsi’s Bio Rex and its foyers.
Globally there have been numerous festivals devoted to the alliance of film and architecture
