The birth of cinema in the late 19th century was accompanied by accelerated development of the city and architecture. The city, universalism and modernism have brought possibilities to new forms of life and fresh perspectives with great promise. Ever since them, urban movies have been a cinematic genre that embraces the relationship between the local and the universal, the political and the private, the public and the personal. This series brings Paris, Rome, New York, Oslo and Seoul to the screen through the eyes of filmmakers from six different decades in a variety of cinematic traditions.
