GIANNI BERENGO GARDIN’S TALE OF TWO CITIES
Sponsored by: Crag Law Center
Community partner: Blue Sky, Oregon Center for the Photographic Arts
How can we preserve the endangered city of Venice? Gianni Berengo Gardin, Italy’s most famous living photographer, embraced this challenge with his powerful photographs and controversial exhibition that triggered debate, protests, and an international outcry. The film examines the photographer’s commitment to Venice and the profound impact of globalization on the city, including giant cruise ships traveling through the heart of historic Venice and unsustainable tourism. Tensions explode in the ensuing climactic events as the audience is forced to confront Venice’s uncertain future.
