EFFA: City Dreams

Australian Premiere

CITY DREAMERS celebrates the impact of four ground-breaking women architects - Phyllis Lambert, Blanche Lemco van Ginkel, Denise Scott Brown and Cornelia Oberlander - and highlights their innovative thinking towards urban development, long before this was popular.

With careers spanning 70 years, these women have a shared vision to create socially-just cities, making great advancements in green spaces, heritage conservation and pedestrian friendly design - advancements which continue to inspire city-planning today.

However, while an important tribute to the impact of their work, CITY DREAMERS also charts the fight by these women to be recognised, despite working alongside the biggest names in 20th Century architecture.

Featuring intimate interviews, captivating archival footage and elegant modernist architecture, CITY DREAMERS rejoices in the careers of these pioneering leaders, offering an intelligent film which is sure to inspire.

This film screens as part of the 2019 ENVIRONMENTAL FILM FESTIVAL AUSTRALIA (EFFA). It includes a post-screening Q&A with preeminent women architects and city planners. For more about the panel, see the EFFA website.
