Free Film Screening:
Paolo Soleri, Beyond Form

Aimee Madsen

  • Director/Producer

Roger Tomalty

  • Co-Writer/Director of Paolo Soleri Studios

Mary Hoadley

  • Arcosanti Site Coordinator

This cinéma vérité style documentary presents a fresh look at the genre and ground-breaking architect Paolo Soleri. He remains largely unknown outside of architectural circles, but his legacy as an artist, builder and urban theorist is staggering. Narrated by actor-activist Peter Coyote, Aimee Madsen’s documentary takes a close look at Soleri’s origins and lifelong labor of love–called Arcosanti, set in the unforgiving desert outside Phoenix, Arizona.

Aimee Madsen, the film’s director/producer, will lead a post-film discussion with Roger Tomalty (co-writer/director of Paolo Soleri Studios) and Mary Hoadley (Arcosanti site coordinator).
