You probably know about Antoni Gaudi — he’s the guy who designed those incredible works of Spanish architecture:
I love these creations. They’re so very fanciful, unusual, and lovely. We covered Gaudi lightly in art history, and my main thought was, “Wait. Those actually exist in the real world?!”
They do! Spain is filled with many other touches of Gaudi, which werehelpfully gathered into a one hour, twelve minute documentary by Japanese filmmaker Hiroshi Tesigahara about 30 years ago — and was recently added to YouTube, free for the watching! So a documentary made by a Japanese man about a Spanish dude — the beauty of it is, it’s completely international. There’s very little script to this flick; mostly moody music, photos, and videos of Gaudi’s work.
So you’ve got tonight’s movie watching planned: Watch Hiroshi Tesigahara’s documentary on YouTube. Feel amazed that a member of your species made this stuff, that it exists on our planet. And if you’re really loving the docu, you can grab it on Amazon, too.
