After a number of sold-out projections all over Europe, the Barcelona’s premiere of the film "REM" will take place at the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia on February 27th.

Filmed and directed by Tomas Koolhaas, the LA-based son of the architect, the documentary aims to take a peek inside the creative mind of Rem Koolhaas, following him in his daily life and thoughts. The film also shows a different side to the architect’s most famous buildings and its inhabitants.

Tomas, who has been critical of films about architecture which are “made up of talking-head interviews interspersed by static, lifeless shots of empty structures,” suggested that REM would be “the first documentary to comprehensively explore the human conditions in and around OMA’s buildings.”

The documentary, which took over 4 years of filming and research, not only reveals Rem’s life and working methods from an unprecedented ‘behind the scenes’ perspective, but gives the architecture greater meaning as the viewer witnesses the one thing that gives it a function and purpose – how it is used by people.

The event, which will be part of the Institute’s Lecture Series, will take place at IAAC Pujades 102, and will be followed by a Q&A session with the director.

“When you make a film about your father the first thing people ask you about is objectivity, or more specifically your lack of it. Without getting too philosophical about it I believe no human being is capable of true objectivity, but it is true that being Rem’s son I’m even less objective than an outside film maker would be. Instead of seeing this as an obstacle to be overcome I decided to use my specific subjective perspective as an attribute to be utilized to give the audience insight into aspects of Rem’s work, life and way of thinking that no one else could. (…) My goal with the film was to show things that have never been shown before, in a more evocative and visually dynamic way than most architecture films. I also wanted the film to be more than just an aggregator of cerebral information, talking head interviews, renderings, technical drawing and architectural shop-talk. (…) I wanted REM to connect with the viewer on a deeper subconscious level rather than just a purely cerebral one, to show the buildings in a more alive and dynamic way, to show Rem in a fuller and more visceral way and importantly to show a ground level perspective of the human stories that span the history of the buildings, from the design process to construction to many years post-occupancy.”

Tomas Koolhaas was born in London on April 16th 1980. In London, he worked at MTV UK and for TANK magazine where he was exposed to production, editing and experimental artistic photography techniques for the first time. With these two very different creative experiences ruminating, Tomas moved to Los Angeles to study cinematography. Tomas secured his first feature film job as a cinematographer straight out of film school. In the following twelve years Tomas worked all over the world but mainly in Hollywood shooting projects of all descriptions and types: art films, music videos, short films, narrative features and documentaries. REM is Tomas’s first foray as a feature film director.
