Awakening City

AWAKENING CITY presents a universal debate on the role of public spaces in contemporary cities, the conflicts of cars against people; malls against parks and squares; private against the public; consumer against citizen; destructive urbanism against green areas. The documentary provides a set of international cases, strategies, and proposals aiming full implementation of the Right to the City. Blending the Essay Film style with experimental tones, AWAKENING CITY, the FIRST FILM directed by Fernando Ramos, former Brazilian Critic, Script Writer and Assistant Director, was already officially selected by more than 40 film festivals worldwide on all the continents.
