The event creator says
Dear Friends of Casket Cinema,

For the May Casket we re-imagine how cities could be built and planned with the Dutch documentary,“the Human Scale”. This film spends quality time with architect Jan Gehl and how he believes if we are to make cites sustainable, we need to rethink the very foundations of modern urban planning. He looks closely at the in-between spaces of city life, such as the places people meet and and interact and behave. He ponders these spaces as the ones which are the most important to nurture and support the modern citizen. Special guests for the evening will be sustainability expert and U of MN adjunct professor Dylan Skybrook with Joshua Fox of the Ecala Group. They will join Casket Cinema Co-founder Wilbur Ince in a post film Q&A. On the Casket Cinema gallery walls will be examples of the stagecraft of James Bakkom. The cinema will open its doors at 7:30pm and the film will begin at 8pm.

"Andreas M. Dalsgaard's excellent urban-planning documentary should enthuse pedestrians, bike riders and public-space proponents everywhere...makes an excellent case for designing cities around people instead of automobiles."
