Inaugurating its cycle of participation in architecture and film festivals around the world, the documentary “SIZA" has been received with prominence at AFFR 2023 - Architecture Film Festival Rotterdam. The festival is a reference in the segment, displaying films, shorts, animations and documentaries about architecture, urban development and city culture.
Being considered by the press and by the festival organizers as one of the “bestselling” premieres, the documentary has found great demand, with tickets selling out quickly just a few days before its premiere. Approximately 60 minutes long, the film offers a unique and intimate look at the life and work of the illustrious architect Álvaro Siza Vieira, highlighting an exclusive collection of fragments of his career, such as sketches, personal memories and family photographs never before published.
With its official launch scheduled for 2024 on the Gallery streaming platform, director Augusto Custodio guarantees that "SIZA is an original production that reinforces our mission of preserving the work and history of the biggest names in architecture and design, through the construction of a rich collection, both physical and digital, that preserves the strength of the legacy of these great names”.
