EKÜMENOPOLIS: CITY WITHOUT LIMITS
Directed by Imre Azem
doc, 93 minutes, Turkey - Germany (2011)
A film evening organized together with Eastern Neighbors Film Festival Utrecht.
Istanbul wants to play in the big leagues. Last year it was the European City of Culture. It has set its heart on winning the 2020 Olympic bid. And the government wants it to be the financial centre of the region. At fifteen million, its population is twice the size of London's, and looks set to double by 2030. The lack of planning regulations means that expansion has come without adequate environmental or safety precautions. As the representative of the Istanbul Chamber of Architects warns, for Istanbul the future means chaos.
