 “Imaginary City” is a visual essay aimed to explore the ability of street art to change the ways of seeing the city. This documentary aims to discover what makes some cities more vivid than others. The slow pace of “Imaginary City” allures into zone where time disappears. It shows the art on the streets of Stavanger as if the viewers are drifting through the city on their own listening to the stories that evoke from the smallest signs on the walls. At the end the visual essay provides the answer for the question asked at the beginning. It assumes that genuine street art changes the people on the streets (it inspires, encourages, instructs, teaches them to look deeper) and those people are changing the city by themselves in a way nobody else could. “Imaginary City” intentionally avoids everything that one can expect from the mainstream street art movie. It is not meant to impress, but rather to give an insight into philosophy embraced by one of the oldest street art festivals in the world. Featuring Martyn Reed, Evan Pricco, Javier Abarca and Carlo McCormick.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with filmmaker Kristina Borhes (UA).

Filmed in Stavanger (Norway) 2015 - 2018.

Voice - over actor: Katie Zaffrann

Music composed by Norihito Suda

Featuring "Call In The Witches" by Farida
