Summary
The edge of possible charts the dramatic course of the creation of the iconic Sydney Opera House and features rare interviews with architect, Jorn Utzon as he reflects on his role in the compelling story of the conception and construction of the Sydney Opera House. Jorn Utzon was awarded the first prize in an international architecture competition to design an Opera House for Sydney. In 1957 he flew to Australia to begin work on the construction of the greatest building Australia has ever seen and, indeed, one of the finest achievements of modern architecture. Utzon was forced from the project in 1966 and has never returned to Australia. What defeated him in the end was politics. His triumph came with the 2007 World Heritage Listing of the building "as a work of human creative genius" and one of the 20th century's greatest buildings. "It stands by itself as one of the indisputable masterpieces of human creativity, not only in the 20th century but in the history of humankind" - Expert Evaluation Report to the UNESCO World Heritage Committee, 2007. The Edge of The Possible, winner Gold Plaque Best Documentary HUGO Awards. Directed by Daryl Dellora and produced by Sue Maslin.
