Part architectural film, part ASMR exercise, this observational study of Walter Gropius’s famed shoe warehouse, The Fagus Factory, is a meditation in every sense. Opening against soft white light and the soothing sounds of a hypnotherapist’s voice, Ben Thorp Brown’s film transports the audience inside Gropius’s landmark. Droning ambience and languid images of laborers at work foster a psychoanalytic space through which the viewer may deeply consider the nature of memory and its constant negotiation between context and content.
