Berlin-based artist Marte Eknæs and filmmaker/animator Michael Amstad present their short film People Mover, 2017, which follows a loose narrative set in an imaginary city to reflect on ideas of flexibility and urbanism.


Focusing on the construction and usage of the urban sphere, the film asks how we form and in turn are affected by commercial and sometimes alienating systems and surroundings. People Mover is accompanied by two related films: John Smith’s Blight, 1994–96, and Charles Atlas/Karole Armitage’s From An Island Summer, 1983–84. The screenings are interspersed with a live set by the Berlin and Portugal-based musician Polido, who also worked on the sound design for People Mover.

People Mover is accompanied by a pamphlet containing an interview with Joseph Vogl by Michael Amstad and Marte Eknæs.
