Academic, painter and master of cinema, Peter Greenaway, will release his new film, “Eisenstein in Guanajuato”, this year. Prior to the film’s release, Mr. Greenaway will meet with designers in a talk organized by Koç University Design Lab.
At the event that will take place as part of the Istanbul Design Biennial, and with support from the SGKM and the Social Sciences Institute, Greenaway will speak about the passionate transformation of his cinema into a present-tense, multi-screen and non-narrative one. By exhibiting the phases he experienced in this remarkable and challenging journey Greenaway will show four films which he considers that might aid his optimism: A HISTORY OF ITALIAN DESIGN commissioned by the MILAN DESIGN MUSEUM, ATOMIC BOMBS DROPPED ON THE PLANET EARTH, a speculative venture, THE TOWERS – LUCCA HUBRIS, commissioned by the CITY OF LUCCA in Italy, and VERONESE’S THE MARRIAGE commissioned by the CINI FOUNDATION in Venice. While discussing these films, he will share with us his critique on the Death of Cinema.
