Title: Angola Cinemas
Authors: Walter Fernandes, Miguel Hurst
Publisher: Steidl, Goethe-Institut Angola
Year: 2015
ISBN: 9783869307947
Language: English

Description:
Angola Cinemas honors the fantastic, unique and little-known architecture of movie theaters in Angola, built in the decades before the end of Portuguese colonial rule in 1975.
Examining the architectural history of these buildings, Walter Fernandes’s photographs are documents of urban organization in the twentieth century, and of the changing mentalities of a society living within the possibility of its foreseen independence. What has changed since then, and what is the future of these urban cathedrals? Angola Cinemas poses such questions, both preserving these architectonic treasures and reflecting on their cultural, social and affective heritage.
