Dreams in Copenhagen
What makes Copenhagen such a fascinating city? This is a poet’s documentary about a city that is sublime and continually in flux. The people we glimpse at melt into the foreground and all that is left is their voices that carry the thoughts of a city changing. Copenhagen takes on an air of steadfastness, beauty and memoirs of times gone by, but also of renewal and imagination. Urbanites will rejoice over this movie while luddites can partake in the spectacle that is the modern city from a safe distance.
