Docucity. Documenting the Metropolis

This section contains information and details on Docucity. Documentare la città, a project on documentary filmmaking on the contemporary metropolis.

The project was born in 2006, within the Degree Course in Language Mediation and Intercultural Communication and in collaboration with CTU.

Docucity has produced:

  • a film archive
