Exciting upcoming film series “The Right to the City” at CUNY

The Right to the City Film Series features five films examining processes of uneven development as they take place in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Newark, Detroit and Istanbul.  Each film will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers and CUNY faculty and students from different departments, bringing together media artists and scholars working on similar issues and research sites.  The Right to the City Film Series seeks to create a space of interdisciplinary discussion on the impact of global capitalism on cities, and to examine the possibilities of media to contribute to urban research.

The series is co-sponsored by the Center for Place, Culture and Politics, Departments of Sociology and Critical Psychology, the Center for the Humanities,  the Center for Urban Research, the Gotham Center for New York City History, the Center for Human Environments, and The Public Science Project, Graduate Center, CUNY
