From city, to block, to building, to brick: Sacred Brick Technology invites the viewer to take a novel look at the familiar yet often unnoticed masonry unit. Exploring concepts of individual identity and magnitudes of scale in urban environments, Ian Bertorelli’s film follows the brick from its beginnings at the dawn of civilization to its role in building Chicago—a staggering metropolis constructed almost entirely out of the very earth on which it stands.
