Perret in France and Algeria

Perret in France and Algeria

Directed by Heinz Emigholz, PERRET IN FRANCE AND ALGERIA is both biography and cultural commentary, telling the story of architectural pioneer Auguste Perret’s dual careers in these two countries. Many of the works that are described here are mired in history, including Parisian buildings destroyed (and later rebuilt by Perret) during World War II. Emigholz’s stunning visual storytelling investigates the architect’s relationship with the volatile societies where his designs came to life.
