Film And Design: Not The Usual Suspects

Film And Design: Not The Usual Suspects

Every Wednesday in May @ 7:00pm
Nearly every film made, unless it’s simply about insects, sharks or penguins, depicts architecture, design and their relationship to human life. A shot of a house, an office, a car, a character holding a coffee cup – every one of these images involves the design of spaces and objects used by people.
The composition of film images itself is an act of architecture and design.
Every Wednesday in May at the Starz FilmCenter, the Denver Film Society in partnership with the Design Council of the Denver Art Museum present the four part FILM AND DESIGN series, which will explore four different aspects of the complex intersection of design, architecture and cinema while staying away from the usual suspects.
Curated by Howie Movshovitz, Education Director – Starz FilmCenter, who will introduce each film and moderate a conversation with the audience and a small panel of experts.
