Invisible Cities is a  poetic film, based on the novel of the same title, by the writer Italo Calvino. Calvino’s writing serves as reflections on the themes of culture, time, memory and death. My interpretation is of the individual and collective memory built into the architecture of the city and the possiblities of what could be. The use of poetic filmmaking is a way to reflect on the possibilities of  landscapes in the urban experience. It was intended as an experiment in understanding the infinite visual layers of the city and our emotional connections to space and sound. After starting the film, we found ourselves in a global pandemic which powerfully demonstrated the interconnectedness of modern civilization and the need for critical reflection. The issues commonly associated with globalization have become more immediate as borders failed to stop the spread of disease, we have become more reliant on the internet for social connection, and many people have paused to reassess their values and the truth in our collective memory.
