The RIBA is pleased to be partnering with Rooftop Film Club to host a number of outdoor screenings and Q&A sessions at the Bussey Building in Peckham throughout June to coincide with the London Festival of Architecture.
Director Jane Campion’s The Power of the Dog is a tale of repression and longing, set in the barren plains and mountains of 1920s Montana. The Oscar-nominated production design creates a place of sparse, minimal domesticity, mirroring the alpha male persona of rancher Phil Burbank - played by Benedict Cumberbatch. Into this hyper-masculine environment, comes Rose, the new wife of his brother George, and her young son, intrinsically altering the fragile hierarchy of the siblings’ relationship.
This event is part of a collaborative series of screenings with Rooftop Film Club.
