Barbicania by Ila Beka and Louise Lemoine

Presented in association with, Open House Melbourne and Australian Centre for the Moving Image

Directed by Ila Bêka and Louise Lemoine, Barbicania is a feature length film capturing a month-long immersion in the life of London’s Barbican Centre and Estate.

Join Bêka and Lemoine as they meet a diverse range of people who live and work in the Barbican. Conceived as a series of diaristic vignettes, Barbicania invites you to discover the personalities, lifestyle and architectural landscapes that make the Barbican so special. With fantastic stories from those who experience the Barbican on an everyday basis: such as Neil who tends to the plants and fish in the Barbican Centre’s conservatory; Paolo who talks about having the ‘magic key’; and Camilla who delves into the Barbican psyche.

Barbicania will be followed by a panel discussion which will explore the film
