Rooftop Architecture Film Festival: The Vision of Paolo Soleri: Prophet in the Desert

The story of an unprecedented artistic quest. Paolo Soleri left Italy for America to be mentored by Frank Lloyd Wright at Taliesin West, Arizona. After eighteen months, Soleri embarked on a blazing original course of his own. While uncovering Soleri’s legacy as an architect, environmentalist, and philosopher, the film poses critical questions about mankind’s future, and about architecture in a world facing environmental, social, and economic crisis. Austin premiere.

Brought to The Contemporary Austin by popular demand and showing for two nights.
