ABOUT ABOUT

This film is a rare, in-depth artistic journey into the work of internationally acclaimed Swiss architect Mario Botta. The film explores Botta’s ever-growing curiosity and reflections on the contradictions of society through his sacred spaces. Why does a globalized society feel the urge to build such spaces?

Passionate, tireless, at age 76, Botta is one of the few architects who has built places of prayer for the three main monotheistic religions. After building many churches, chapels and a synagogue, he is now working on a mosque in China. Through his reflections and his interactions with artists, colleagues, clients and family members, the viewers have a glimpse of the man behind the architect.
