Tessa Rex and Irene Bartelome (2015 UnionDocs CoLab Fellows) will be screening their project “The Williamsburg Houses” Purchase Cheap http://www.bibliophilia-liest.de/?p=5391 Buy at 2016 Brooklyn Film Festival, June 3-12.
Set over one bright morning, in the stylistically shot THE WILLIAMSBURG HOUSES gaze into the architecture and lives of the occupants of one of the most ambitious public housing projects ever built in the United States.
In THE WILLIAMSBURG HOUSES viewers explore in a timeless composition how the concept of a house intersects with architecture. Through the voices of its occupants dive into the depths of the politics and history of a structure. Exploring the remains of an initially utopian design in a contemporary context, we become immersed in the life of a building and a community.
