Rem Koolhaas and Shumon Basar in conversation before the UK premiere of "1,2,3 Rhapsody" and "The White Slave"
10 October 2011, Cinema 1, Barbican Centre, London
Architecture on Film: The White Slave / 1, 2, 3 Rhapsody + Rem Koolhaas Introduction
An extremely rare opportunity, for the first time in the UK, to view Koolhaas' early work in cinema. His fabled collaboration with Rene Daadler resulted in The White Slave (1969) – a 'provocative allegory about the decline of European civilization'. These films have been newly restored and subtitled especially for the screening, and will be followed by a Q&A between Koolaas and Shumon Basar.
