'Columbus' - Palm Springs Film Premiere

Saturday, February 24, 2018, 2:00 AM - 4:30 AM

Feature debut by Writer/ Director Kogonada, starring John Cho, Haley Lu Richardson and Parker Posey.

Ages 12 and older

When a renowned architecture scholar falls suddenly ill during a speaking tour, his son Jin (John Cho) finds himself stranded in Columbus, Indiana – a small Midwestern city celebrated for its many significant modernist buildings. Jin strikes up a friendship with Casey (Haley Lu Richardson), a young architecture enthusiast who works at the local library. As their intimacy develops, Jin and Casey explore both the town and their conflicted emotions: Jin’s estranged relationship with his father, and Casey’s reluctance to leave Columbus and her mother.

The relationships between each of the characters are imbued with warmth and humanity, and the filmmaking — like the city’s structures designed by the likes of Eero Saarinen and I.M. Pei — is simply gorgeous.

The modernist landmarks in Columbus are true co-stars here and seeing them on a big screen with digital projection, as the backdrop to much of the film, is extraordinarily satisfying to see. From Rolling Stone’s Peter Travers, “How do you make a ravishing romance about architecture? You’ll find the answer with Kogonada, the video essayist and critic whose debut feature, Columbus, is a spellbinder.”
