Tokyo in #180sec

With One Another – Against One Another: 180 Seconds Tokyo

Tokyo, the city of loneliness: for many the Japanese metropolis is the symbol of the anonymous big city. In Shimokitazawa, Tokyo’s Greenwich Village, the city shows itself from a very different side. Cat lover and civil rights activist Kenji Shimodaira, the self-made restaurant owner Kumiko Yamamoto and the vinyl connoisseur Masao Tsubaki describe the cooperation and conflict in their neighbourhood.

Eddu has transformed the building in which he lives into a space for artists: in Barraco#55 he wants to show the world that the Complexo do Alemão is a place not only of conflict but also of art.

Pilsen in 180sec

With One Another – Against One Another: 180 Seconds Pilsen

In the middle of a huge estate of prefabricated houses from the Communist era is the club ATOM, a centre for socially excluded children and young people. They go to ATOM to work together on their homework, to dance, and to make the ugly areas round the former department store a bit nicer.

Beijing, #180sec

With One Another – Against One Another: 180 Seconds Beijing

Jian Yi films with a thermal imaging camera and so portrays his city, Beijing, through the temperature of its inhabitants: they keep one another warm in the metropolis of twenty million. But all too often the city becomes too warm for the individual, and his wishes the crowds around him would go to hell. And just then the telephone rings. It is … a junk call; an anonymous voice wants to sell the director Jian Yi insurance.

montreal

With One Another – Against One Another: 180 Seconds Montréal

Between Montreal’s office towers demonstrators and police confront each other. In his quest for spectacular images, for images that are better than those of his colleagues, Jacques Nadeau enters into the thick of the anti-government demonstration. The press photographer wants to show what this partly peaceful, partly violent protest is about. He wants to show who takes to the streets in Montreal – 180 seconds in the midst of the fray, surrounded by people who are making history.

Leipzig, #180sec

With One Another – Against One Another: 180 Seconds Leipzig

Everyone wants to go to Leipzig. Leipzig – the new Berlin? Heaven forbid! says Roman Grabolle. The Leipziger has dedicated himself to ensuring affordable living and cultural space in his city and promotes cooperative and non-profit housing and cultural projects. In his favourite neighbourhood of Lindenau, he tells us of luxury renovations, rising rents and why, when he hears the word “Hypezig”, he gets goose bumps.

Paris

With One Another – Against One Another: 180 Seconds Paris

In 1999 the artist Francesco entered for the first time the abandoned building in 59 rue Rivoli. Today the squat between the Louvre and the Arc de Triomphe is a focal point for artists from all over the world. The long struggle with the city and enduring the fear of being evicted paid off. The then mayor of Paris, Bertrand Delanoë, bought the house for artists and set the tone: art needs space – and not money.

The after-squat “59 Rivoli” is open to visitors: http://www.59rivoli.org/main.html
