    The Italian video artist, filmmaker, producer and publisher Ila Bêka is a part of the artist duo Bêka&Lemoine, whose films delve into the complex relationship between our daily lives and the built environment. Through their unique lens and experimental storytelling, they explore the nuances of human behaviour and spatial identities in architecture and urbanism.
