This year the 6th edition of UrbanEye Film Festival takes place between 6th and 10th November at Elvire Popesco Cinema and Arcub with the support of Expo Arte. In focus of the festival are films and events which present the relation between man and nature. How does the nature influence the man-made environment? How do people change the nature and the landscape? How do people live in extreme conditions and how could we bring the nature into the urban area? These are just a few questions raised through the documentary films and the related events within the festival.
Most of the selected films will be presented in the national premiere, addressing different facets of how the urban environment and nature are mutually influenced. The spectators are invited to think about how the man shaped the nature (in “Anthropocene: The Human Epoch” and “Zhalanash – Empty Shore”), to see how different living concepts are defined in different parts of the world (in “The Human Shelter”) and travel from Russia’s most polluted city (in “Melting Souls”) to life in harsh conditions in the Himalayas, where access to education involves huge sacrifices for small communities (in “The Children of the Snow Land”).
