This screening is the third film in the CINEMA series, a platform for The Substation’s Discipline The City 2017 programme.
From hyperactive cities to languid villages or post-apocalyptic slums, CINEMA explores the urban conditioning of bodies by routines, ideologies or police control. Anchored by the opening film of Tokyo!, the four selected films follow protagonists as they struggle to rise above cyclic states of discipline. Through the sub-themes of Transformation, Anarchy, and Rebirth, the collection reveals how places shape their inhabitants.
