Leeds International Film Festival: Paris Tower 13
November 6, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
This film is part of Leeds International Film Festival. It is shown alongside the Abandoned Yorkshire Photography Exhibition, after the doors have closed to the public for viewing.
Tower 13 was a Paris apartment building slated for demolition that became, for a single month in October 2013, the world capital of street art. Thomas Lallier’s fascinating film is an insider’s view of a unique artistic endeavour. Curator Mehdi Ben Cheikh invited over 100 artists to take over all 4500 square metres and 10 floors of the Tour Paris 13, secretly and without means. More than 400 artworks were made accessible to the public for 30 days. But, despite hours of queuing, major media and online coverage, nothing could prevent the tower from its final – and artistic – destruction.
