Greentopia Film & Little Theatre Present, ‘Urbanized’, February 2.

January 21st, 2012

'Urbanized' is a documentary film by Gary Hustwit about the design of cities.
The very same people responsible for Rochester’s Greentopia Festival are expanding the Greentopia brand this year to include a series of film screenings. My heart skipped a beat when I learned they’ll be bringing Gary Hustwit’s Urbanized external link to the Little Theatre for a one-night-only event featuring a panel discussion afterwards. I’ve been waiting for this movie to hit Rochester for months. Now I won’t have to travel to someone else’s city to see it!

Urbanized is the third part of Gary Hustwit’s design film trilogy, joining Helvetica external link and Objectified external link. Have a quick peek, then grab your tickets external link before they’re gone…

Tickets…

$10 (plus $1.24 fee) online here external link.
Or, $12 at the door.

The Panelists…

Joni, who holds Masters degrees in Architecture from Yale University, Historic Preservation from Columbia University and Education from the University of Rochester, is committed to providing community connections to design and planning resources.

She is a frequent presenter at conferences as well as to regional groups including visiting students and design/planning studios working on projects in conjunction with the RRCDC. Joni is directly involved with developing the education and training programs offered by the design center in an effort to encourage thoughtful policies effecting communities. A key motivating force in her work with the RRCDC is the belief that educated citizens are better equipped.
