URBAN POWER was selected to turn their vision into a film in an open script-competition arranged by the Danish Arts Foundation.
The film describes the current challenges in Denmark, where the outskirts are depopulated and have poor job opportunities, while the larger cities struggle with housing prices and endless traffic jams. The country’s public transportation is often slow, ineffective and has dead ends and detours.
We envisioned a land no longer split by physical barriers and distances, where interregional travel was a matter of only time. Denmark would seem to shrink, as former far-off destinations come within a grasp. A high speed mobility loop would allow the citizens a flexible choice between where to live and work, with the potential for day-tourism.
