Last September, the Architecture Film Club organized the screening of “The vertical farms”, a film on the construction of urban farm “towers” in the future. This is also considered a way to recreate nature in the cities. The film has raised many debates about whether or not to use technological innovations as a primary tool in the recreation of nature.

In October, still revolving around the topic of creations by human in the city, the club will bring about another subject: the parks. As we know, a park is a vital public space in the city, where microclimates and bio-diversities are created which have a good effect on human’s mental health. This is also where human exchanges happen, a place owned by the people, a proof of an equal society. Parks have always been a fundamental criteria of a sustainable city.

“Frederick Law Olmsted and the Public Park in America” by director T.W. Timreck will be screened on October 7-8, showing the audience the values of a park that many times, we don’t see its effects. However, the primary attraction of the movie is the life story of the first landscape architect of America, Frederick Law Olmsted, and the process of his first project: New York’s Central Park. The film talks about his uncompromising battle in politics and social classes in American society in the mid-19th century, when he brought about the idea of an “open” park, which was very new at the time. “Open” means connecting the city with the park, creating a grand landscape effect, but also open for every social class to benefit from this public space. Many landscape design philosophies by Frederick Law Olmsted are also mentioned in the film – full of artistic creativity, humanity and closeness to nature.

The film is made in the form of a storytelling movie, but also has the characteristics of a historical documentary. Parts of his romantic life are also included in the film, revealing how they affect the artistic life of a man who designed hundreds of parks in America.

The film will be screened with Vietnamese subtitles.

Free entry.

This energetic animation has numerous true-to-life frames, telling a vivid adventure through many lands by the funny flock of birds. This is the first 3D animated film that made entirely in France by a talented professional team in Europe. Benjamin Renner – co-director of Oscar-nominated movie “Ernest & Celestin” – created the character designs. Stephen Warbeck composer – who won an Oscar for the soundtrack of the 1998 film Shakespeare in Love Cartoons – wrote the soundtrack. The movie is both refreshing for families and a meaningful lesson for kids.

When he is about to set off on the great migration, Darius, the oldest member and leader of the flock, gets injured. He must confide all his secrets and the new itinerary to the first bird that comes along.

And this bird… is our hero, thrilled by the idea of at last getting to discover the world… but not all a migratory one!
