    Public space short films

    Hi,
    Has anyone got any good ideas on where to find cool, sexy, short films /vids that explore the concepts of public space? This, of course, is an immensely broad description, but a starting point nonetheless. Topics could include things like corporatized / colonized space, urban design, street art/ graffitti, urban exploring, urban agriculture, etc.

    If you'd like to share anything you've come across it'd be much appreciated. Thanks!

    cheers,

    Have you looked through the Project for Public Spaces website: http://www.pps.org/ ?

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    I don't know where you might find it,but Wiliam Whyte did a film about how many public spaces were not at all friendly to the public. Might get somewhere via google.
