Living Cities Film Series

Program

Imagine the world from the beginning of time through to our speculative futures: with and without humans.

ACMI is proud to partner with the Living Cities Forum and Open House Melbourne to present a suite of four films that speak to the Forum’s 2021 theme, "The Long View" — a theme that asks how different perspectives on time can affect the growth of our cities, and the shape of our futures.

Featuring Björk: Biophillia Live, Last and First Men, Homo Sapiens (with a live score by ARIA award-winning composer Heinz Riegler) and Imagined Cities: Urban Futures Prototyped through Film (a series of short films presented by speculative architect and director Liam Young), the program applies a gradient of lenses that examine the macro and the micro of humankind's presence on this planet.
