'Perspectives' part of the 'Reset the City' film series in Den Bosch
Perspectives, a documentary on the life and work of Dutch architect Wiel Arets, produced by George Vogelaar, will be screened as part of the 'Reset the City' film series taking place in Den Bosch, the Netherlands, on October 2nd and December 17th, 2012, in cooperation with the Bosch Architectuur Initiatief. The documentary sketches an image of an enthusiastic and tireless architect working throughout the world. Set within the Netherlands, Milan, Zürich, Berlin, and Tokyo, the producers travelled with Arets for months, talking with him along the way about his ideas and theories as they relate to architecture, design, and metropolitan development – as well as his current projects. The film’s producers also speak to Arets about his choice of clothing - in particular his affection for Comme des Garçon, his passion for Japan and its culture, as well as his time as Dean of the Berlage Institute in Rotterdam, as a tenured professor at the Berlin University of the Arts (UdK) and his countless professorships at the world’s most renowned universities. Perspectives is an in-depth portrait of a driven and highly energetic man: Wiel Arets.
