The Venice Syndrome

The Robin Boyd Foundation film society DADo presents The Venice Syndrome as the first film in its program for 2015.

The film, directed by Andreas Pichler, tracks and explores the contrast between the romantic notions of Venice as a holiday destination and the degradation of its urban life over time. The remnants of the lives of the city’s 48,000 residents amid the bustle of the 20 million annual foreign visitors is revealed.

The screening will be accompanied by guest speaker Doug Hall, Associate Professor and Honorary Principal Fellow at the Australian Institute of Art History at the University of Melbourne.

Mr Hall is the former director of the Queensland Art Gallery and was the commissioner for the Australian exhibitions at the Venice Biennale in 2009 and 2011.

DADo film society regularly screens films on architecture, urbanism and design.
