Heinz Emigholz's Streetscapes

MUBI Special

Continuing our focus this year on the multi-faceted German filmmaker Heinz Emigholz—from of our Architecture of Autobiography retrospective—MUBI is proud to exclusively present his new documentary series. The brilliantly unclassifiable “Streetscapes” pinpoints perspicacious intersections of art, urban landscape, politics, history and psychology. We encourage you to read more of the director’s extensive notes on his own website about each production: 2+2=22 [The Alphabet], Bickels [Socialism], Streetscapes [Dialogue], Dieste [Uruguay].

Dieste [Uruguay]

Heinz Emigholz Germany, 2017

Expired

A testament to Emigholz’s fascination with geometry, the fourth part of his Streetscapes comes in the shape of a triptych. The film elegantly connects three moments in time through architecture, channeling the notion of permanence across History, and the silent interaction of buildings with nature.

Streetscapes [Dialogue]

Heinz Emigholz Germany, 2017

Expired

The third entry in Emigholz’s Streetscapes series, and perhaps the one that solves the mystery of it all! Uncharacteristically structured around fictionalized therapy sessions, this is a playful and illuminating experiment shedding light onto the director’s entire architecture-focused body of work.

The second of Heinz Emigholz’s unique documentary film series "Streetscapes"—an intersection with the director’s famed architecture studies—is a provocative juxtaposition of buildings that were designed in Israel’s past for grand social and political goals and now shown in their present state.
