Barbicania (2014)
Director: Ila Bêka and Louise Lemoine
92 minutes
English; Turkish subtitles

Capturing a month-long immersion in the life of the Barbican Centre and Barbican Estate in London, Barbicania (2014) portrays one of the most representative achievements of brutalist architecture. Shaped as a diary, the documentary questions the durability of this post Second World War utopia while recounting the directors’ discoveries throughout the many floors of the towers: an intimate portrayal of the personalities, lifestyle, and architectural landscapes that make the Barbican residential estate so unique.
