Please join the SAF for a screening of the architecturally significant film, Columbus.
Columbus is a 2017 American drama film written, directed, and edited by Kogonada in his feature directorial debut. A Korean-born man finds himself stuck in Columbus, Indiana, where his famous architect father is in a coma. The man meets a young woman who wants to stay in Columbus with her mother, instead of pursuing her own dreams to be an architect. The film is shot on location at the many famous architectural icons in Columbus, which are almost a third character in the film. The film premiered at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival and was released in the United States on August 4, 2017, by the Sundance Institute, receiving acclaim from critics.
Among the famous Modernist buildings that feature in the film are the First Christian Church by Eliel Saarinen, the Irwin Union Bank, Miller House, and North Christian Church by Eliel’s son Eero Saarinen, and the Cleo Rogers Memorial Library by I. M. Pei.
