Vivariums and Architecture on Film:
In this episode of Resonance’s monthly show on how Architecture and the built environment is represented in Culture, we explore examples of architecture on film. Alex Fitch talks to director Jessica Hausner about her psychological thriller Little Joe, which explores the effects of a genetically modified plant designed to alter people’s emotions, plus her movies about uncanny locations such as Hotel, Lourdes and Amour Fou. Alex also chats to Lorcan Finnegan about his film Vivarium that depicts the fortunes of a couple trapped in a maze of identical suburban houses, after a young couple get lured in by a creepy estate agent.
Plus, Mark Kermode discusses depictions of Architecture in such films as Blade Runner and The Shining in a lecture recorded at the University of Brighton.
Originally broadcast Wednesday 18th March 2020 on Resonance 104.4 FM / DAB (London)
