Description: Rotterdam 2040 is a movie about the city’s future, departing from the principle of Gyz La Rivière that you can’t look ahead without considering your past (something that hasn’t everytime been Rotterdam’s strongest feature). At high speed, La Rivière reconstructs the history of Rotterdam from the time before the bombings until now, and expands the developments to the year 2040 (100 years after the bombing and the 700th anniversary of the city). La Rivière made a specific choice to expose his private vision, which is sometimes radical or a tiny absurd. So no experts and no talking heads, but an assault of old and fresh imagery, held together by La Rivière as the narrator of the film. Although Rotterdam 2040 deals with architecture and urban renewal, it is now a movie about people. The subjective experience of the town by its (future) occupants mainly determines the parade of architectural blunders and recommendations for the future. All tongue-in-cheek of course.
