La Défense is a black and white 16mm film.
Taking its starting point in the district La Défense in Paris - a financial district with modern architecture - the work explores the surrounding architecture’s ideological and pragmatic effects in this cityscape.
Four different stories with no clear beginning or end are woven together and seeks to visualize the instabilities connected to architecture, finance and relations.
