Olympic Halftime

Czech Republic, France, Greece |  2021 |  85 min. |  director: Haruna Honcoop | DoP: Lukáš Milota, Ondřej Belica | screenplay: Haruna Hancoop

In antiquity, the Olympic Games were always held in one location. However, with their recreation in 1896, they were set in motion and organising the Games has become a contest of prestige for the hosting countries.  The film spotlights the competition in the field of architecture and urbanism in those countries where the Olympics have already been held and currently where some of the planned Games are to take place in the same country. We watch the different length of time between the original architectural-urban and political legacy and the forming of the anti-Olympic movement in Tokyo 1964/2020, Beijing 2008/2022 and Paris 1900/1924/2024.
