Projections show that by the year 2050, 75 % of the world's population will be living in urban areas. Naturally, this is an evolution that brings with it its fair share of problems, and in URBANIZED filmmaker Gary Hustwit takes a look at innovative urban projects from all over the globe. The projects differ in scope, philosophy and strategy, but they are united by the fact that they focus on the citizens' vital role in the city organism. URBANIZED is an entertaining and thought-provoking film about one of the biggest challenges of our time from the director of HELVETICA (2007) and OBJECTIFIED (2009).
