With his films HELVETICA and OBJECTIFIED, Gary Hustwit provided an entirely new lens for us to understand our intricately designed modern world. In URBANIZED, he takes us on a journey through the visionary thinking happening as the globe shifts its population from villages to cities. Who shapes our cities, and how do they do it? Hustwit visits numerous projects, talking to the world’s foremost architects, planners, policymakers, builders, and thinkers about housing, mobility, public space, civic engagement, economic development, and environmental policy. (U.S., 2011, 85m)

“Brave and timely … strikes almost exactly the right tone. The more people who see URBANIZED the better.” –The Guardian
