Synopsis

Alarmed by the growing crisis in 60's era cities, a futurist and visionary scientist, (one who predicted climate change, personal computers and the recycling revolution), presents a bold and hopeful vision of the city of the future whose technology and innovative design will eradicate pollution and waste, reduce crime and unrest and lead the way toward 21st-Century urban life. This science-factual account of the quixotic EXPERIMENTAL CITY is a fantasia of 60's techno-utopian fervor. The film deftly illustrates the clash between a modern day Galileo and the burgeoning environmental movement he could not overcome.
