Place Capital: A Live Documentary Film About Cities
UW Runstad Affiliate Fellows Present - Place Capital: A Live Documentary Film About Cities
From travels to Berlin, Krakow, Fukushima and Detroit, this year's Runstad Affiliate Fellows present a live documentary film about the changing nature of cities. From centers of trade to nodes of information and culture, the Fellows share stories about cities that have experienced destruction and renewal. What makes places resilient? How will the sharing economy reshape our urban experience? Are there better ways to approach development in our own community? Join us for an evening of moving images, stories and reflections.
