Architecture of Infinity

Swiss filmmaker Christoph Schaub’s unusual, poetic, and visually beautiful survey of contemporary sacred spaces and church buildings considers the work of architects Peter Zumthor, Peter Märkli, and Álvaro Siza Vieira; artists James Turrell and Cristina Iglesias; and percussion virtuoso Jojo Mayer. Making a case for a spiritual life in architecture and other arts, the film relates the spaces on view to the natural world, while Schaub's cinematography often suggests an otherworldliness. He also turns his film into a personal journey through his earlier life, when his personal fascination with architecture began. (Christoph Schaub, 2018, 86 minutes)
