The entire programme of Cinema Architecture 2016: Typical Movies consists of twenty different screening events divided in four series. The restriction to show only films that are shot in a single building, played a cardinal role. It is a clear condition that allows the space of the film to be read within a limited area.
Each series is defined by a specific ‘scale’ of the film. The films are grouped according to the dimensions of the building and the camera movements within the space and the thresholds of the building. The themes of the four film series are described as following. #1. One-room Space, a series of films made entirely in one room, without any possibility for the camera to move out of it; one door is the only access. #2. Sequence of Rooms, in which the camera moves continually from one room to another; several doors are crossing points. #3. Captured Landscape, where the camera movement is restricted to one building and its outdoor space; the window is the outlook to the landscape. #4. Big Scale, which investigates the camera movement within the large space of the building.
