Look Back #5:
World Premiere of babel by LOD and Steve Salembier, Pahokee and more.

On the last day of AFFR 2020, visitors could again enjoy the Architectenweb Best of AFFR this year. We showed the most important films of the festival in 30 pax full theater rooms. In room 1 and on AFFR LIVE, many watched Jack Sim's fight in Mr. Toilet, introduced by professor Merle de Kreuk, the impressive Pahokee with introduction by journalist Eelco Bosch van Rosenthal and the contemplative Last and First Men, preceded by a lecture by architect Lada Hrsak about the brutalist Spomeniks in former Yugoslavia. In the studio of Connie Janssen Danst, the performance Babel by LOD music theater and architect Steve Salembier was premiered: an enchanting piece full of models, video images and music. We could not have wished for a better conclusion to this special edition of AFFR.
