Columbus … is a clever and compelling exploration into how physical structures can come to represent emotional landmarks in our personal lives, and the drive we have to share them with others.” — Vanity Fair

Join Frances Anderton, host of KCRW’s DnA: Design and Architecture, and filmmaker Kogonada in the SANAA-designed River building at Grace Farms for an advance screening of Kogonada’s Columbus, a new film that centers around the small Midwestern city celebrated for its many significant modernist buildings by Eero Saarinen, I.M. Pei, and Deborah Berke, among others. The screening will be followed by a conversation between Anderton and Kogonada as well as a light reception.

When a renowned architecture scholar falls suddenly ill during a speaking tour, his son Jin (John Cho) finds himself stranded in Columbus and strikes up a friendship with Casey (Haley Lu Richardson), a young architecture enthusiast who works at the local library. As their intimacy develops, Jin and Casey explore both the town and their conflicted emotions: Jin’s estranged relationship with his father, and Casey’s reluctance to leave Columbus and her mother. With its naturalistic rhythms and empathy for the complexities of families, debut director Kogonada’s Columbus unfolds as a gently drifting, deeply absorbing conversation. With strong supporting turns from Parker Posey, Rory Culkin, and Michelle Forbes, Columbus is also a showcase for its director’s striking eye for the way physical space can affect emotions.

This program is presented in partnership with The Glass House — a National Trust Historic Site located in New Canaan, Connecticut—built by architect Philip Johnson.
