What is the urban film ? : ”Films devoted to the city and to all the practices and ways of life that come from it. Through urban films, true stories, whether somber or funny, find their common denominator in their scenery: the street, from Seoul to Rio, and passing by Seattle or Ouagadougou. The urban movies rediscover the city in a broad sense: history, dance, movement, community, streets cultures, sports, all of the aspects of the city and urban cultures are represented.”
