All That Is Solid investigates Brutalist architecture through the surface of black and white celluloid. The film features three prominent examples of Brutalist architecture, Robarts Library, U of T Scarborough campus and York University campus. Footage of the buildings has been degraded using a number of chemical and physical processes. The film explores the utopian visions that inspired the Brutalist movement and the material and aesthetic connection between concrete and celluloid.
