Cities for People

Lars Oxfeldt Mortensen, Denmark, 2000

57 min.DK/Documentary

Jan Gehl, a Danish architect has spent a generation studying our behavioral patterns in cities. In this film Gehl travels around the Nordic cities and explains why some cities are inviting and how others actually repel us, leaving us cold. It's not a question of being aesthetically beautiful or ugly, but rather a question of whether a city-center is suited to our senses and movements. »Cities for People« shows how we conduct ourselves in cities and how our senses of sight, hearing, speaking and feeling respond to them.

Det Danske Filminstitut registrerer international festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, dog primært de titler, som Filminstituttet varetager i sin festivaldistribution, og primært i forbindelse med de festivaler, som Filminstituttet har prioriteret at samarbejde med. Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution, foretages kun for "launch"-festivaler ifølge Filminstituttets prioriterede festivalliste.
