Chicago Film Archives is teaming up with the Chicago International Film Festival to present CFA films at the upcoming Chicago Architecture Biennial – a multi-platform event geared at facilitating radical new thought about what the built environment should be in the 21st century. More information about the screening and other biennial programs can be found here.

Chicago is much more than its famous towers. This program of films from the Chicago Film Archives reveals the rich history and diversity of the city’s communities and spaces in the 1960s, from portraits of Chicago’s West Side and a house famous for its Indian swami to a chronicle of displaced homeowners. A discussion with architecture photographer and critic Lee Bey and Robert Smith III, Associate Director of the National Public Housing Museum, will follow the screening.

A PLACE TO LIVE (Department of Urban Renewal City of Chicago, 1968, 28 min.)
HALE HOUSE (Larry Janiak, 1965, 11 min.)
THE CORNER (Robert Ford, 1967, 26 min.)
