The Citytellers, a film by Jodicio

Visiting Professors Chiara Ingrosso and Luca Molinari of Università degli Studi della Campania Luigi Vanvitelli, Naples, Italy in the Social Space Bar, following their two-day seminar. Chiara showed a project entitled The Citytellers by the Italian photographer and filmmaker Francesco Jodice, a trilogy about three different global cities: Sao Paolo, Aral and Dubai. The Citytellers explores the transformations of today’s megalopolises, particularly in terms of new social, political, economic and religious phenomena. The screening was followed by a seminar discussion group around the relationship between film, cinema, architecture and urban design. M1 students explored parts of Johannesburg, culminating in five short films which will be screened at the GSA Summer Show in November.
