Tropical Modernity. The Cinema of Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster

The work of Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster has been shown at Documenta in Kassel, the Biennials of Venice and Sao Paulo, and at the Tate Modern, but has been seen little in cinemas. This programme is therefore both an unusual event and a privilege: the session includes her famous urban trilogy, filmed in Tokyo, Hong-Kong and Rio de Janeiro and Central Park, a film that draws together, like an album, 11 short pieces filmed over seven years, about urban experiences and those beyond the city.
