CITY WORLD is a landscape narrative/doc hybrid in which an unseen boy tells a tale of great adventure, apocalyptic futures, and troublesome histories over images of the swamps and suburbs of a depopulated Orlando, Florida. His tale slowly swivels from a magnificent fantasy to his own harrowing familial reality.
"CITY WORLD is probably the closest you will get to 'hearing visions'. A dazzling and disturbing hybrid work, which shares its fascinating natural mysticism with a number of contemporary filmmaking's most innovative names - just in an even more radical synthesis of images and sound. Brent Chesanek gives us an exemplary demonstration of the fact that a film can relate to both the real and the possible. Neither documentary nor fiction, but simply a film." -Mads Mikklesen, CPH:DOX
