Michael Klein and Sasha Pirker have been working on the theories of the architect and visionary Yona Friedman, and they have developed a cinematic language for their presentation. In place of master narratives, Yona Friedman puts small and seemingly innocuous stories at the center of his thinking on real utopias, themes like the size of a group in which it is still possible to communicate directly, a simple fountain that can still provide water in case of emergency, or the city as a place of arrival. Friedman counters prescribed planning with the potential of spontaneous and ephemeral action: “We improvise all the time. We are used to it. All I am telling is you don’t need to be afraid of it” (Yona Friedman).
