Genre/Subjects: Architecture/Design, Documentary
Thursday, September 12 @ 7:00pm
Colorado Premiere and pre-film reception sponsored by Women In Design!
Pre-film reception held at Sie FilmCenter lounge at 6pm.
Women in the Dirt draws portraits of seven influential female landscape architects from California, whose range of work includes ritzy residential spaces, vast public projects and the revitalization of inner-city lots. Their projects combine awareness of architectural and landscape principles, concern with sustainability, safety and beauty. Through conversations with the landscape architects in their offices, or in the stunning spaces they’ve designed, the film explores each woman’s personal aesthetics and approach to their discipline. Women in the Dirt shows how these “masters of the obvious” create the sublime. Post-screening panel discussion with Colorado women landscape designers and a reception to follow at Udi's Pizza Cafe Bar (2550 E. Colfax Ave.)
