pure cinema of great perfection and beauty
This is a splendid study about the buildings of the American architect Bruce Goff, once a collaborator of Frank Lloyd Wright. Goff's houses are visions of combining nature's elements with houses and there is a great variation of forms. He adapts his buildings to their surroundings. Emigholz visits the sites of buildings of Goff and films them. Shot in 35 mm the images and beautifully lighted the images create an atmosphere of the location which enables you to get an feeling for the buildings. There is no commentary, the beautiful images speak for themselves and draw you into the world of Goff. The excellent sound contributes a lot to the atmosphere of the locations. Heinz Emigholz is a master of the craft of film-making and creates pure cinema of great perfection and beauty.
