Description

CONCRETE LOVE: THE BÖHM FAMILY is the first and only documentary about one of Germany’s pre-eminent architects, Gottfried Böhm. The only German laureate of the prestigious Chicago-based Pritzker Prize for Architecture, he is also the patriarch of an architecture dynasty to which his sons Stephan, Peter and Paul belong. But with the death of his wife Elisabeth, a key source of inspiration for all for Böhms, the family loses its emotional lodestone. The film paints an intimate and pointed portrait of the complexity and inseparability of love, art and architecture.
