Urban Lab Films and Bertha DocHouse host an evening of experimental urban documentaries – from Lisbon to London and New York to Buenos Aires - at Curzon Bloomsbury to open the month-long City, Essay, Film series.


City, Essay, Film is a series of events hosted by UCL Urban Laboratory to examine the concept and practice of the ‘urban essay film’. Urban Lab Films will host a series of screenings with Bertha DocHouse throughout June and July, curated by David Anderson and Jordan Rowe.

This opening screening showcases a number of exemplary urban shorts from across the globe. From Lisbon to London and New York to Buenos Aires, the films share intriguing takes on their subjects with an inquisitive eye on the city, its successes and its failures, its people and its spaces.

'Janela (Window)' (dir. Left Hand Rotation, 2019) [UK Premiere]

'The Solitary Life of Cranes' (dir. Eva Weber, 2008)

'Work' (dir. Gamar Markarian, 2019) [UK Premiere]
