Creative Cities is a documentary that takes three vibrant and international art scenes as the vantage point from which to look at cities with emergent economies that have been dramatically impacted by recent and intense processes of globalization.

Cities like Beijing, Delhi, and Mexico City have developed cosmopolitan artistic elites at the same time as uneven capitalist development has created a panorama of contrasts – sometimes rich, sometimes jarring.

How fertile are such contrasts for the artistic imagination? How transnational are universal values?

Artworks will guide us through cities while key actors of each art scene and their work will reveal cultural specificities that will stimulate our curiosity and challenge our understanding of modernity, democracy and globality.
