Filmed in Prague and at the Unité d'Habitation in Marseille Caryatid Row is a film about people reading in the public space moving through it and transforming it. Reading seems to transport them into another world changing the image of the habitual one. A shady backyard may become a beach in utopian morning light, facades of modernism may turn into images of reminescence and caryatids may start to speak of their ancient, heavy burden.
