The Experimental City is a documentary about the Minnesota Experimental City project, a futuristic attempt to solve urban problems by creating a full-size city from scratch in the isolated woods of northern Minnesota. At the heart of the story is renowned scientist, inventor and comic-strip author Athelstan Spilhaus, who dreams of a new kind of planned city, a truly experimental city that continuously changes to find workable urban solutions. This new city would employ the newest technologies in communications, transport, pollution control, energy supply – even large-scale domed enclosure – in an attempt to create more livable cities for the 21st century.
Following the screening will be a short Question-and-Answer session by the filmmaker, Chad Freidrichs.
This screening is FREE to PHLF Members. Non-members: $10. RSVPs are appreciated: email@example.com or call 412-471-5808 ext. 527
