Product Description:
The Sydney Opera House is a landmark of architectural design. Designed by the celebrated architect Jorn Utzon, it had been a subject of political controversy right from its inception. It is said that Utzon was smartly forced from the project in the year 1966 and since then he never came back to Australia. It was politics which defeated him in the end. This wonderfully photographed movie, exquisitely charts the triumphant, invigorating and later the tragic course of the design as well as construction of this famous Sydney Opera House.

The program includes rare interview sessions with the late master architect Jorn Utzon. The program known as Edge of the possible can also be described as a glorious dedication to the architect describes fully the construction of the international masterpiece- The Sydney Opera House and the various issues which emerged in its face of completion which compelled Utzon to resign. A special feature of this film is the extended interview the famous architect, Jorn Utzon which is all of fifty minutes. There is also more interesting material, which includes unseen footage which is filmed during the construction of Sydney Opera house.

The program also features interviews with Utzonís colleagues who talk about the late architect along with a mute film made by Utzonís chief assistant Mogens Prip-Buus. This silent film wonderfully portrays the construction of the famous opera house and the protestations that shook the political sphere when Utzon resigned. In 25 years, this is the first instance when John, appears in an interview (quite lengthy) and speaks in English. Not just him, his four close colleagues who are from a close knit team of talented architects, enjoying international fame, have also featured for the first time, in this film.
