The long-awaited documentary “REM“, based on the works of Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas, will be premiered during the 73rd Venice Film Festival, which will take place from August 31st to September 10th, 2016.

The film focuses on the human relations brought up by the Rem Koolhaas‘ architecture, in contrast to many architecture documentaries that merely portray the empty spaces inside and around the buildings. The documentary, which took over 4 years of filming and research, was directed by the architect’s son himself.
