. "Deborah Berke, I.M. Pei, and Eero Saarinen have all left their mark there.

"I took a day trip to Columbus a few years ago," recalls Kogonada. "I had recently read about this mecca of modernist architecture in the farmlands of Indiana. Walking around, I encountered buildings designed by Eero Saarinen, I. M. Pei, Richard Meier, and others. There was an undeniable poignancy to it all - this quiet town in the conservative Midwest functioning as a living (and ghostly) museum to the promise of modernism. I immediately felt inspired to make a film there. During our visit and drive home, I already had a sense of the characters and the story that would unfold."
