Casa Ki-Ké

Casa Ki-Ké

After his father’s death, architect Gianni Botsford clears out his house in Costa Rica. It’s a house made to measure, essentially a huge bookcase in which to live. For Botsford’s father, the writer and journalist Keith Botsford, was a collector of books and art. In the voice-over, Botsford recalls the design process in which they searched together for the best way of curbing the Costa Rican climate, which is totally unsuitable for preserving paper. Botsford also considers what his father has meant to him since his youth, making Casa Ki-Ké, through the vehicle of architecture, a wonderful and moving film about universal loss and the value of a place.
