FRANCE , United States | 94 minutes | 2017

A portrait of Chicago that also serves as an impressionistic rumination on racism, the social divide and the layout of urban spaces. As a European, far removed from America’s historical and urban planning problems, Augusto Contento sets up his camera in the city of Chicago. From the awe-inspiring downtown skyline to the outlying neighbourhoods, from the suburbs to the lakeshore, the Italian documentary filmmaker pieces together a sensory, personal vision of a world indelibly marked by culture and history.
