WORLD PREMIERE

This screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Marcus Robinson and Humbert Camerlo (the founder of the Full Moon Theatre in Gorgoubès).

A cinematic homage to Peter Rice, one of the most distinguished engineers of the late 20th century. Tracing Rice’s extraordinary life and career, from his Dundalk childhood to his work on the Sydney Opera House, The Pompidou Centre and the Lloyd’s building, to his untimely death in 1992, Marcus Robinson uses stunning time-lapse photography and revealing interviews to tell the story of a genius who stood in the shadow of architectural icons. Until now.
