Director: Max Kestner
A voyeuristic ode to the buildings and landscapes of Denmark's capital.
A tribute to the physical surroundings that shape the lives of Copenhagen locals, Max Kestner's documentary avoids historical reverie to create a ‘here and now' snapshot of a thoroughly modern city.
While lovingly profiling the architecture of the Danish capital, Kestner also brings a fascination with how public space is affected by those who live in it; finding his way into back-streets, he lingers over walls onto which people have scratched the names of their loved ones.
Features an atmospheric soundtrack by Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson.
“People are what happen to the city and architects' designs. People living their lives changes all their fancy plans. Life lived is full of quirks and accidents.- filmmaker Max Kestner
