FIFA | Screening of Where We Grow Older and Green Over Gray: Emilio Ambasz

Event, in English and in French, 16 March 2024, 7:30pm

Where will you live once you grow older? Will your city take care of you? How to can you design for the elderly, and for those who care for them?

Conceived by Giovanna Borasi, directed by Daniel Schwartz, and produced by the CCA, the documentary Where We Grow Older (CCA, 2023, 30 min) concludes a three-part short film series examining the ways in which changing societies, new economic pressures, and increasing population density are affecting the homes of various communities. While the first film What It Takes to Make a Home (CCA, 2019, 29 min) addressed homelessness, the second film When We Live Alone (CCA, 2020, 27 min) examines the ways in which people live alone. Where We Grow Older looks at how the growing ageing population is reshaping architectural and social constructs, and questions the role of urban design and politics in facing theses challenges.

Join us for the Québec premiere of this documentary on 16 March, at 7 :30pm, during the 42nd edition of the International Festival of Films on Art (le FIFA). The Canadian premiere of the documentary Green Over Gray: Emilio Ambasz will follow. It explores the green architecture revolution through the seminal projects of Emilio Ambasz, a pioneer in the debate on climate impact who has redefined the relationship between humans and their environment, foreseeing a vision of nature as the fulcrum of a historic change.
