The Tugendhat House
Director and producer Dieter Reifarth made his film documentary by interweaving conversations with Tugendhat family members, former users of the house, art historians and restorers, together with historical photos and film footage, creating a multifaceted biography of a building. Against the background of the political catastrophes of the 20th century, the film tells of the personal experiences of residents and users of the unique house, whose beauty and charisma left its profound traces with several generations. At first glance, it is just a story of an extraordinary building. In fact however, the documentary by Dieter Reifarth about a house by Mies van der Rohe is so epic and exciting as a novel that spans a whole century.
