[Credits] [Tickets & Termine] [Trailer]

With the con­s­truc­tion of the Indian plan­ned city of Chandigarh, the Swiss and French archi­tect Le Corbusier com­ple­ted his life’s work 70 years ago. Chandigarh is a con­tro­ver­si­al syn­the­sis of the arts, a bold uto­pia of moder­ni­ty. The film accom­pa­nies four cul­tu­ral workers who live in the plan­ned city and reflects on Le Corbusier’s lega­cy, uto­pian urban ide­as and the cul­tu­ral dif­fe­ren­ces bet­ween East and West in an atmo­sphe­ri­cal­ly den­se narrative.
