  3. Not necessarily a film, but a series of videos recorded last semester at the [IN THE URBAN CRISIS] lecture series held here at Parsons and organized by one: Miguel Robles Duran.

    Speakers include Frank Morales, Tom Angotti, Don Mitchell, Ana Méndez de Andés, Andrew Ross, Erik Swyngedouw, Jeanne van Heeswijk, and Pelin Tan.

  6. Here is the site to “The Last Summer at Coney Island” You can stream or download the video. It shows a great display of all sides of the process with any possible development, community vs. developers, etc.

  7. Here is the documentary by PBS about New York City. It is not displayed by PBS but it is divided into parts on youtube. It is 8 parts overall accumulating to 14.5 hours of documentation. I highly recommend watching at least some of the footage, it is very intriguing and interesting and informing.

  8. The Vanishing City

  9. I tried to attend this panel; but, I was unable to. However, an acquaintance from the internet rights scene taped this. This is a long but fascinating discussion on Bloomberg’s policies in relation to this city’s luxury trajectory. I highly recommend Julian Brash’s recent book, Bloomberg’s New York.

  10. CCC: Creative Capitalist City movie
    (full version) online for free

    synopsis: “This film is more than a local documentary on Amsterdam. It
    explores the latest urban re-/development pattern in advanced Western
    capitalist cities. The hype around the creative city began already a
    decade ago, it is global in scope and about to reach its peak. After
    Richard Florida’s influential book “The Rise of the Creative Class” (2002)
    creativity has advanced to be the role model of urban regeneration: The
    New American Dream. What is new about this dream? What happens when the
    hype is over? Housing as a job or the Right to the City”?

    written and directed by: Tino Buchholz

  11. If reading Marx and Harvey on fixed capital isn’t generating concrete visuals or examples, I recommend this feature-length documentary (available on Netfilx streaming) titled MANUFACTURED LANDSCAPES. Stunning shots of factory floor production and the materials economy.

  13. I would like to encourage all of you to go see the film “Neighboring Sounds” (O Som Ao Redor), now showing at the Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center at Lincoln Center. The movie’s interweaving stories are set in a high-rise district of Recife and involve themes of security, spaces of class relations, and historical legacies. Here is a Village Voice review:

  15. Manhatta (1921) – Dir. Charles Sheeler & Paul Strand

    Fascinating old look at New York as the industrial city, caught it at MoMA four years ago in the restored edition with a newer score (not featured here).
