Please join us online for the release of three short films of three BOH crowd favourites in the session Poetry and Contradiction.
In these films, producer Rebecca McIntosh focuses on the poetic nuances of buildings with a special place in the curiosity of the people of Brisbane.
The United Grand Lodge of Queensland is home to a secret society; its imposing façade and quiet presence has intrigued many over the years.
The State Archives of Queensland, hidden away in an urban forest, is a cool, clinical facility that contains the gritty details of local lives; some heroic, some deadly, many mundane.
St John’s Cathedral bustles with community but is, at times, a place of peaceful reflection. This film gives us a special look at this gothic revival’s kaleidoscope of colour.
We acknowledge the assistance of our funders. These films were produced with investment from the Queensland Government through an Adaption grant, and through the Department of Public Works and Housing, and The United Grand Lodge of Queensland. Our thanks also to the building managers for their time in granting us access to these special places.
Brisbane Open House wishes to thank Rebecca McIntosh (@becmactv), the producer of these three films.
