Architecture Film Summer School / Love Lockdown - Mexico City
Love Lockdown - Mexico City by Mies.TV
With the opportunity to tell an international story, the following films focus on individual experiences of romantic and familial love in the time of a pandemic. Whilst the scale of the emergency has been worldwide, the coping mechanisms found in each country feature humane similarities shaped by differences in cultural and legal landscapes. As an international team of filmmakers, the paradox of both limited collaborations and increased communication in these times are shown when these stories are told together.
ARCHITECTURE EFILM SUMMER SCHOOL organized by MAXXI in collaboration with Copenhagen Architecture Festival part of Future Architecture, Co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
As part of the activities of the Future Architecture European network, MAXXI has asked five young creatives selected through the FA Open Call to produce architectural videos addressing issues
related to the relationship between the pandemic and inhabited space. During an online workshop that lasted the entire month of June, the authors produced works focused on domestic isolation,
the impact of lockdown on emotional and social relationships and the disturbing role played by
public space in the hot months of the pandemic.
