SDLFF Presents The Proposal at Digital Gym Cinema

THE PROPOSAL (July 5 – 11)

Known as “the artist among architects,” Luis Barragán is among the world’s most celebrated architects of the 20th century. Upon his death in 1988, much of his work was locked away in a Swiss bunker, hidden from the world’s view. In an attempt to resurrect Barragán’s life and art, boundary redefining artist Jill Magid creates a daring proposition that becomes a fascinating artwork in itself–a high-wire act of negotiation that explores how far an artist will go to democratize access to art.

“Critic’s Pick! Enthralling [and] unaccountably moving. The movie asks a lot of the viewer, but to this viewer, it gives back more. ” – NY Times

“A film of considerable visual poetry and, at times, grandeur. ” – Screen Daily

“A soul-searching work of scorching honesty that functions both as an anatomy of love and marriage, and as an evisceration of masculinity.” – Sight & Sound
