Another day, another smashing design-themed documentary! In Reconversão, director Thom Andersen trains his lens on Pritzker winner Eduardo Souto de Moura with a blend of old-school (think Vertov and Muybridge) techniques and eye-popping HD wizardry. Zooming in on 17 of the Portugese architect’s buildings and unrealized projects, and overlaid with his own words (via a guest voiceover), the film gives Souto de Moura–a master of the reborn ruin–the last word: “If there is nothing there,” he says in an on-screen interview. “I invent a pre-existence.” Keep an eye out for the documentary as it makes the festival rounds. We think it’s the perfect primer before delving into Phaidon’s forthcoming jumbo Souto de Moura monograph.
