# Great Construction Processes in Cinema: Andrei Rublev & Fitzcarraldo

Two movies, so far (there are probably a lot of other potential ones), have deeply moved me for their extensive dramatization of a process of construction within their plots. Those two films are Andrei Rublev by Andrei Tarkovsky (1966) and Fitzcarraldo by Werner Herzog (1982).

The first one depicts a fragment of life of XVth century Russian icon painter Andrei Rublev. Nevertheless, Tarkovsky dramatizes this life by lingering on surrounding events for which Rublev is only an influenced spectator. The most significant of them is the construction from A to Z of a bell for the local cathedral and is filmed extensively by the Russian director.

The second film is one of the most famous of German director Werner Herzog's and introduces a passionate character of Fitzcarraldo who undertake a tremendous challenge involving a steamship and the native population of the Amazon Forest in Peru. I won't reveal what this challenge is about in order to save this amazing surprise for people who would not have watched it yet, but here as well, the process of construction is extensively visible.

Those two cinematographic episodes recount the deep fascination one (and especially a designer) can have in the contemplation of a work in progress which transforms mater into a designed assemblage. The beauty, here, is not in the finalized object but rather in its process of construction that also had to be achieved, to some extents, by the two films' teams.
