Frank Gehry: Building Justice + ChildSafe: Designed to Heal

Architecture & Design Film Festival: NOLA

Program #5


Frank Gehry: Building Justice

Director: Ultan Guilfoyle

2018 / 70 min / USA

Frank Gehry: Building Justice tells the story of architect Frank Gehry’s investigation into prison design as a subject for the best architecture students in the United States. The film follows Gehry as he arranges two ‘master’ studios at the invitation of George Soros and his Open Society Foundation — one at SCI-Arc in Los Angeles, the other at the Yale School of Architecture. In collaboration with Susan Burton of the “New Way of Life Reentry Project” in Compton, California, Gehry and his students explore all aspects of prison design, learning first-hand the design flaws of prison life from women who have been incarcerated in the worst American prisons. The film follows the group on a trip to Norway to visit what is considered to be the world’s most successful prisons.

ChildSafe: Designed to Heal

Directors: Isaiah Rendon and Leo Aguirre

2018 / 4 min / USA

ChildSafe is a nonprofit organization that helps restore dignity, hope and trust to those children who have been traumatized by abuse and neglect.  In 2016, ChildSafe found themselves in a building that was too small to sustain their growing support programs and their increase in staff. They enlisted the help of San Antonio architecture firm Overland Partners to build a new, state-of-the-art campus. This new facility would allow the organization to incorporate multiple government agencies such as health professionals, state agencies, law enforcement and legal teams under one roof. Inspired by ChildSafe’s unique mission, Overland embraced the opportunity to create a building that could serve as a catalyst for human transformation.

The June 22nd showing of this program includes a panel discussion
