Landscape becomes a character in Columbus, a gentle, quietly assertive film from director Kogonada about the relationship between the son of a renowned architecture scholar and a young architecture student  – portrayed by John Cho and Haley Lu Richardson respectively – as they explore both the town of Columbus, Indiana, and their conflicted emotions. Its celebration of Columbus’ striking modernist architecture makes the film both bold and subtle, and it’s stunning cinematography captivates a conversation between human and environment. Aptly, the screening on Thursday 18 October is due to be introduced by Eddy Rhead, the co-founder of Manchester’s own The Modernist Society, a creative project dedicated to celebrating mid-20th Century architecture and design.
