'THE HUMAN SCALE' PREMIERES IN US CINEMAS / by Mauricio Gonzalez-Aranda

The award-winning film The Human Scale, directed by Andreas Dalsgaard and produced by Signe Byrge Sørensen for Final Cut for Real, will have its US cinema premiere in New York, Friday October 18th at the IFC Center. 

Director Andreas Dalsgaard will be participating in Q&A's together with experts Andrew Wiley-Schwartz, Assistant Commissioner for Planning and Sustainability at New York City Department of Transportation; Fred Kent, founder and president of Project for Public Spaces; Alex Marshall, journalist and author of How Cities Work: Suburbs, Sprawl and the Roads Not Taken; Caroline Samponaro, Senior Director, Campaigns & Organizing, Transportation Alternatives. 

The Human Scale questions our assumptions about modernity, exploring what happens when we put people into the center of our equations.

"With The Human Scale I wanted to capture the way we live in cities today," notes director Andreas Dalsgaard, " and how our social nature and habits are connected to the physical habitat we live in...I wanted to create a kaleidoscopic image and sound scape, where the audience can participate in a sort of meditation on modern life."
