The documentary film Learning from Light: The Vision of I.M. Pei will be presented in English with Vietnamese subtitles in Hà Nội and HCM City, and entry will be free of charge.
Ieoh Ming Pei is 99 years old and is considered the last architect of the modern architecture movement alive today.
For three years award winning directors Bo Landin and Sterling Van Wagenen have followed the almost centenarian IM Pei in his work to complete the Museum of Islamic Art in Qatar. Their documentary film tells the story of a man who has transformed architecture around the world. His work with the Louvre in Paris, and the introduction of the glass pyramid that upset some and fascinated many, is just an example of his insightful bravery to cross cultural divides and bridge worlds that has so much to learn from each other.
The film screening will take place at the Hà Nội Heritage Space and Salon Cà Phê Thứ Bảy in HCM City simultaneously on June 18. — VNS
