Miriam - Portrait © Miriam Jakobs Miriam Jakobs and Gerhard Schick are documentary filmmakers and teach film and media studies. They are back here to explore Bangalore’s urbanity and urban development. The aim of this research is to collect material for our documentary and web based series "CITISTIL - Urban Reflections" that deals with urban designs worldwide. We are developing this series with our colleagues from the Department of Film, and Urban and Regional Planning, as a new interdisciplinary format.

Gerhard - Portrait © Miriam Jakobs As one of the fastest growing cities in the world, Bangalore offers fantastic prospects to analyze and cinematically represent urban dynamics and challenges.  

During their first visit as bangaloREsidents in 2015, they got a chance to intensively explore the city which they wish to further expand and develop. The focus of their current project lies not only on shooting at various places in Bangalore, but also on interviewing inspiring players of the city.
