ADFF Toronto: Best in the World w/ Panel
Join us at ADFF Toronto for the Canadian Premiere of Best in the World.
56 mins | Denmark | 2022
Director: Hans Christian Post
Copenhagen is widely considered one of the world’s most livable cities, but it wasn’t always this way. Best in the World offers a closer look at the Danish capital’s journey from an industrial city on the brink of bankruptcy to the transformed Copenhagen of today. Celebrated writer and filmmaker Hans Christian Post takes stock of the cost of this transformation, examining inequity within the city’s borders and in the surrounding countryside. Through conversations with architects, activists, and writers, the film asks us to consider who ultimately benefits from the desirable new city.
Stick around for our short panel discussion happening immediately after the film for a great discussion on housing affordability in Toronto. You can find more information about our speakers below.
