Description
dir. Mark Lewis
An homage to the “City Symphony” films of the 1920s, Invention is a searching love letter to urban spaces, art, and cinema.

From famous corners of the Louvre museum to the modernist buildings of Oscar Niemeyer in Brazil and Mies van der Rohe in Canada, director Mark Lewis takes us on a poetic, silent tour of fluctuating cityscapes, capturing the texture of these places, their landmarks, and the people who inhabit their streets and buildings, with images of glass, light, reflections, concrete, spiral staircases, and paintings.  (2015, 87 min, digital, silent)
