"If any film could be described as an architectural symphony, it is Hiroshi Teshigahara's 1984 movie Antonio Gaudí."—New York Times

Hiroshi Teshigahara made some of the most audacious films of the last century (including Woman in the Dunes), so who better to capture on film the astonishing buildings and interiors of Catalan architect Antonio Gaudí? Viewers are taken on an unforgettable tour of Gaudí's masterpieces (including the unfinished Sagrada Familia cathedral in Barcelona) through Teshigahara's exquisite cinematography and sensual camera movements. One of the greatest documentaries about an artist's work ever made! (72 mins., 35mm)
