Zagreb Confidential - Imaginary Futures

short docu-experimental film, 2016 (13 min)

The film traces 50 years of urban development of Zagreb neigbourhood that is built since 1960s. The heritage of modernism and utopian urbanism are placed in today's context marked by transition and lack of urban planning. An innovative technique of algorithmic editing was developed to juxtapose the archival footage with 3d modeling.
