“If buildings could talk, what would they say about us?” Cathedrals of Culture offers six responses. This 3D film project allows six iconic and very different buildings to speak for themselves, examining human life from the perspective of a manmade structure. Six filmmakers bring their own visual style and artistic approach to the project. Buildings, they show us, are material manifestations of human thought and action: the Berlin Philharmonic, an icon of modernity; the National Library of Russia, a kingdom of thoughts; Halden Prison, the world’s most humane prison; the Salk Institute, an institute for breakthrough science; the Oslo Opera House, a futuristic symbiosis of art and life; and the Centre Pompidou, a modern culture machine. The movie explores how each of these landmarks reflects our culture and guards our collective memory.
