Fernando Gómez-Luna ‘Platopolis’

Synopsis:

Halfway between the tourist transgression and a dadaist essay on how to shoot, 'Platopolis' proposes the creation of a territory as a walking tour in a structure rhizome through the district of Le Plateau-Mont-Royal, seated on a plateau at the foot of Mount symbolic of Montreal (Canada). From the micro to the macro, travel and stops offer a fresh of the forms of life in this hipster neighborhood where skateboarders, homeless, artists, designers or middle-class families appointment... People, fauna and flora that hatch in summer after a long and hard winter. A vibrant ecosystem as Deleuze’s plateau, ever changing and always in the middle.
