City Symphonies

Audiovisual creation project

What are our cities like? And what can the gaze of filmmakers reveal about them?

City Symphonies takes as reference point the "city symphonies" of the early 20th century, but also more recent films, and takes the approach of a first-person notebook in which the filmmakers record their thoughts and emotions, and suggest many different perspectives of living in today's city. It aims at creatively seeing and analysing urban space through the personal itineraries of the different filmmakers, creating a collection of audiovisual woks that bear witness to the cities of the early 21st century.

City Symfonies is a project produced by the CCCB working in collaboration with the professional collective Dones Visuals. The selection of works has been made to give a voice to both established and emerging filmmakers.
