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.

SALT Cinema screenings will take place at Çankaya Municipality Contemporary Arts Center (ÇSM). Program is free. Reservations are not accepted.
