Episode 91 – Hiroshi Teshigahara’s Antonio Gaudi

This is the podcast dedicated to The Criterion Collection. Ryan Gallagher, James McCormick & Travis George discuss Criterion Collection news & rumors and new releases. They also discuss Criterion #425 Hiroshi Teshigahara’s 1984 film, Antonio Gaudi.

Catalan architect Antonio Gaudí (1852’“1926) designed some of the world’s most astonishing buildings, interiors, and parks; Japanese director Hiroshi Teshigahara constructed some of the most aesthetically audacious films ever made. Here their artistry melds in a unique, enthralling cinematic experience. Less a documentary than a visual poem, Teshigahara’s Antonio Gaudí takes viewers on a tour of Gaudí’s truly spectacular architecture, including his massive, still-unfinished masterpiece, the Sagrada Familia cathedral in Barcelona. With camera work as bold and sensual as the curves of his subject’s organic structures, Teshigahara immortalizes Gaudí on film.
