WED 10 Oct. – 20:30
The tenth edition of AFFR opens with the European premiere of The Experimental City(Chad Freidrichs, 2017), a stunning documentary about The Minnesota Experimental City. A megalomaniac plan developed in the 1960s to show that the growing problems of big cities could be resolved. Air pollution, mobility, waste collection, energy use: the city offered a solution for everything. The film is a fascinating journey through time, filled with attention-grabbing science fiction from the 1960s; 50 years later, it seems more relevant than ever. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the maker, and of course drinks and music to celebrate this jubilee edition.
