Synopsis

This is the seventh instalment of the Temporary Cities series: portraits of cities filmed in small areas about to undergo a transformation: a neighborhood, a square, a café, or even a single bench. Every one of them connected by a central theme: its residents, their perception, and how they use these public spaces. [rm]

ZimmerFrei (Italy) is an art collective created by Massimo Carozzi, Anna de Manincor, and Anna Rispoli. It originated in Bologna in 2000, and has now spread to its hometown and Brussels. Combining cinema, visual arts, music, and performance pieces, the group’s artistic approach explores urban environments, both real and imaginary, searching for the boundaries between public and private spaces. While still experimenting with performance art, in recent years ZimmerFrei has been focusing more on artistic documentaries. The Torino Film Festival paid tribute to the collective in the Onde section of its 2012 edition, screening a selection of their work.

Director statement

“The film portrays a former industrial city, Chalon-sur-Saône, through a sci-fi filter, examining its potential future. What will Chalon-sur-Saône look like in 2040? The documentary is a collective and original creation, projecting visions, fears, and desires on an imaginary, dystopic city. The future is already here.”
