Abstract:

"Everything comes from the great book of Nature; human attainments are an already printed book."--Gaudi, end title screen. The Catalan architect, ceramist, and sculptor united Neo-Gothic mysticism and grandeur with Art Nouveau lines, combined with a surreal apprehension of the power of nature. Less of a documentary than a tribute, Teshigahara's film becomes a place to get lost, a radically hypnotic travelogue that's completely symbiotic with its subject. Almost wordless, this visual rhapsody is accompanied by music from composer Toru Takemitsu, whose free-floating East-meets-West impressionism and organic flow mimics the sprouting curvilinear shapes of Gaudi's buildings.
