At the Edge of the Present

"At the Edge of the Present" is the first of two meditative essays on cities and urban coexistence; on how we connect with public space and with each other. Based on fieldwork and expert interviews, and featuring still photos from 21 cities, the film challenges us to step out of our comfort zone and engage with the city.
