Product Details

Catalan architect Antonio Gaudí (1852–1926) designed some of the world’s most astonishing buildings, interiors, and parks; Japanese director Hiroshi Teshigahara constructed some of the most aesthetically audacious films ever made. Here their artistry melds in a unique, enthralling cinematic experience. Less a documentary than a visual poem, Teshigahara’s Antonio Gaudí takes viewers on a tour of Gaudí’s truly spectacular architecture, including his massive, still-unfinished masterpiece, the Sagrada Familia cathedral in Barcelona. With camera work as bold and sensual as the curves of his subject’s organic structures, Teshigahara immortalizes Gaudí on film. Special Features * New, restored high-definition digital transfer * New video interview with architect Arata Isozaki * Gaudí, Catalunya, 1959, footage from director Hiroshi Teshigahara’s first trip to Spain * Visions of Space: Antonio Gaudí, a one-hour documentary on the architect’s life and work * A BBC program on Gaudí by director Ken Russell * Sculptures by Sofu—Vita, a short film by Teshigahara on the sculpture of his father, Sofu Teshigahara * Original theatrical trailer * New and improved English subtitle translation * PLUS: A booklet featuring a new essay by art historian Dore Ashton, a reminiscence by Hiroshi Teshigahara, and Hiroshi and Sofu discussing their trip to the West
