STRANGE & FAMILIAR: ARCHITECTURE ON FOGO ISLAND
DEADLINE - APRIL 5
Strange & Familiar: Architecture on Fogo Island - BUY THIS DVD!
In a rapidly urbanized world, what does the future hold for traditional rural societies? As Fogo Island, a small community off the coast of Newfoundland, struggles to sustain its unique way of life in the face of a collapse of its cod fishing industry, architect Todd Saunders and social entrepreneur Zita Cobb's vision for positive change results in the envisioning, designing and building of strikingly original architecture that will become a catalyst for social change. Experience this staggeringly beautiful place and how the community and local workers, together with Saunders and Cobb, come together and play a role in this creative process during a time of optimism and uncertain hope. Change is coming to Fogo Island. -- Architecture & Design Film Festival
