JOHN GOLLINGS: EYE FOR ARCHITECTURE

Australia, 2009 (MIFF 2009, Homegrown)

Director: Sally Ingleton

Known as the unofficial curator of Australian architecture, John Gollings is a wizard who can turn a building into an award-winning piece of art. Combining his two loves, architecture and photography, this man has conceived the most memorable of architectural images - whether detailing the modern metropolis of Melbourne, or the rapidly changing topography of Asia.

This documentary offers a peek through the personal lens of Gollings, and takes a walk along the razor's edge of architecture in ancient cities like Cambodia's Angkor and India's Hampi.
