See Frank Gehry flip the bird, Zaha Hadid lash out at critics and Jean Nouvel litigate in a new documentary called “The Competition,” coming out in the U.S. April 1.

Directed by the Spanish architect Angel Borrego Cubero, “The Competition” follows Gehry, Hadid and Nouvel, as well as Norman Foster and Dominique Perrault, as they compete to build a national museum in the micro-nation of Andorra, according to Curbed.

The film is set between 2008 and 2009 – the height of the economic crisis – and it “exposes the world of iconic architecture at its worst,” the Guardian writes.
