The Last City (Die letzte Stadt) – Heinz Emigholz

The Last City (Die letzte Stadt) – Heinz Emigholz

Architecture with a capital A is the focus of the work of the celebrated experimental filmmaker Heinz Emigholz. Not a backdrop, but the lead role. He describes his films as ‘hardcore documentaries’, and his latest work is perhaps his most accessible. The Last City is about five cities – Be’er Sheva, Berlin, Athens, Hong Kong and São Paolo – but above all it’s about life itself. The film is a philosophical encounter between an arms dealer and an archaeologist, a priest and a police officer, a curator and a cosmologist. While his previous films were silent, The Last City opens up. Emigholz explores the intersection of fiction and reality in a wondrous stream of consciousness. The Last City is a seemingly autobiographical dream. A metaphor for all cities, and for humankind as a whole.

Followed by a Q&A with filmmaker Heinz Emigholz.
