Curator-filmmaker Tim Leyendekker present for discussion with Alex Waterman (A Necessary Music) and critic Jim Supanick.

Although our built environment is not necessarily designed to facilitate our personal longings and desires, its spaces certainly enable us to court, fight, make love, get drunk, debate, urinate and walk our way back home from that embarrassing dinner date. Taking his works still (2006) and the Healers (2010) as a starting point, Rotterdam-based artist Tim Leyendekker curates a program that focuses on films that deal with the Western urban landscape as a witness to intimate social interactions and the de/reconstruction of the cinematic narrative.
