Who Dares Wins: Zaha Hadiddirected by Roger Parsons

Alan Yentob profiles the most successful female architect there has ever been. Born in Baghdad in 1950 and based in London, Zaha Hadid is now one of a handful of global superstar designers who have changed the way people think about the world through buildings. Yet this hasn't always been the case; Hadid once had a reputation as unbuildable, a 'paper architect' whose projects began as vivid paintings of gravity-defying shapes exploding into the void. How did this extraordinary woman - by turns charming, stubborn, visionary yet exacting - come to build the impossible?

Dior and I, directed by Frédéric Tcheng

Frédéric Tcheng’s solo directorial debut brings the viewer inside the storied world of the Christian Dior fashion house with a privileged, behind-the-scenes look at the creation of Raf Simons’ first haute couture collection as its new artistic director - a true labor of love created by a dedicated group of collaborators.

Halden Prison in Norway,  directed by Michael Madsen – in 3D
Sun 10/19 @ 7:00

Norway’s Halden Prison, designed by Danish architectural firm EMA, was described as “the world’s most humane prison” by TIME Magazine. But can a prison be truly humane? Michael Madsen’s Halden Prison demonstrates the paradox of a building that is meant to contain and punish dangerous convicts, yet has barless windows, panoramic views of breathtaking nature, and offers its denizens a unique imitation of “normal life.” As Madsen explains, “The ideal of architecture is to have no boundaries between the inside and outside … and a prison has to do the exact opposite.” Using a free-floating camera as a counterpoint to the prisoners’ captivity, Madsen probes the boundary between humanist ideals of rehabilitation and society’s historical hunger for revenge, using 3D to explore the psychological space of architecture.
