‘Wrapping a Room’
Wrapping a Room, directed by architect Ana Herreros, has been awarded with an honorable mention for Emerging Director at the Venice Architecture Film Festival.
Produced during ‘The Berlage Theory Master Class’ directed by Bêka and Lemoine, the film Wrapping a Room explores proximity and familiarity of people with their surroundings after the confinement suffered during the pandemic. Revisiting the novel by Xavier de Maistre of 1794 A journey Around My Room, the participants were invited to produce five-minute films in which they manifested their relationships with their own domestic spaces through a critical and personal view. As Xavier de Maistre said: What can one do when one is in house arrest but traveling with the mind?
