"If buildings could talk, what would they say about us?"
Cathedrals of Culture offers six startling responses. This 3D film project about the soul of buildings allows six iconic and very different buildings to speak for themselves, examining human life from the unblinking perspective of a manmade structure. Six acclaimed filmmakers bring their own visual style and artistic approach to the project. Buildings, they show us, are material manifestations of human thought and action. The film explores how each of these landmarks reflects our culture and guards our collective memory.
