180 Seconds City
From Berlin to Bogota – and back via Tokyo and Montreal! 16 cities, 64 short films and four themes taken from life in the big cities of the world.
In the city
To live in the city is to live a multitude of urban experiences. One of them reveals itself on a daily basis, in a more discrete manner: walking. As long as we accept to play the game of wandering without a final destination, oscillating at times between dreams and observations, we can find ourselves suddenly transformed into realflâneurs.

In our ongoing efforts to connect the art scenes in Canada and Germany, we asked prominent Canadian authors to present their "favourite German book" to our visitors and readers. The result was a collection of personal appreciations of favourite or most important or loved or most influential books.
