Open House Melbourne is proud to partner with the Living Cities Forum and ACMI to present a suite of four films that speak to the Forum’s 2021 theme, The Long View—a theme that asks how different perspectives on time can affect the growth of our cities.
The suite features a series of short films presented online by speculative architect and director Liam Young – Imagined Cities: Urban Futures Prototyped through Film – as well as a series of cinema screenings featuring Björk: Biophillia Live, Last and First Men, Homo Sapiens (with a live score by ARIA award-winning composer Heinz Riegler). Together the program applies a gradient of lenses that examine the macro and the micro of our presence on this planet.
