Alter Polis has brought together eight teams of young architects which have carried out different proposals regarding the relation between the city, Utopia and humanism. Architects, critics, researchers and collaborators comprise a work platform about the city as an entity which can be researched from a humanist point of view. Once the established period for the production and presentation of the eight proposals of the Utopia city is over, on December 4 at 6 p.m. will be held a meeting between the teams of architects, the critics and the project's curator in which experiences will be shared and the distinct proposals will be presented.

“What- or who- made gargantuan monsters come to our cities? Cities have turned into their natural habitat and also their main source of food; slowly, they advance and transform our environment as they devour it. It soon was clear that they were going to stay for a long time.

Programme for Saturday 22 November at 18.30 pm



I For India, India, 2005. (England, Italy, Germany). Documentary. Sandhya Suri. Running time 70’. Language: English, with Spanish subtitles.
Download the complete programme of November

In 1965, Dr. Yash Pal Suri left India and moved to the United Kingdom. When he got to England, he bought two Super-8 cameras, two projectors and two reel-to-reel recorders. He sent one set to his family in India and kept the other. For 40 years, he used it to share his new life abroad with his relatives. Meanwhile, his family in India did the same, sending “letter/movies” where they told the story of their day-to-day lives. Over time, as his plan to return to India became increasingly more unlikely, the joy and curiosity of the first exchanges gave way to the harsh reality of alienation, racism, and the decline of the family. Identity, memory, racism and immigration are topics covered in this documentary from the perspective of a Hindu family that arrived in England in the 1960s.
