About the Show
(Melbourne International Film Festival)
A free Melbourne Conversations event exploring cinema’s stylised visions of future cities, from the machinery of Metropolisto the mind-bending experiments of Dark City. Are these cinematic cities of tomorrow simply two-dimensional caricatures of our culture, or are they thought experiments that shape and inform real world city building? We have brought together a filmmaker, urban planner, researcher and technologist to discuss the sometimes bright and sometimes dark metropolises that populate our screens and our streets.
Panellists include Alex Proyas, Angela Ndalianis, Stephen Rowley and Vanessa Toholka; moderated by Richard Haridy.
