Index presents a comprehensive film program in three parts as part of The Promise, with a selection of films and affiliated talks that reflect investigations of the city as a social and political playground. Part I of the program actualizes the relation between the imagined and the lived city. The films in this series focus on the 20th century’s large-scale urban projects and the rapid urban development that followed, touching upon the dichotomy between utopian visions and modernism on the one hand, and civic powerlessness in questions concerning the public sphere on the other. With films by Reinhold Holterman, Lennart Johansson and Lennart Arnér, Per Olof Grönstrand,Carl Slättne, Sven Elfström, and Lina Selander and Oscar Mangione. The screening takes place at Index, Kungsbrostrand 19 and is a collaboration between Index and Film i Samtidskonsten.
