“Well-conceived and skillfully written, City 21 is well worth your time.
It is an insightful and poignant documentary that reflects the interests and trends of the 21st century lifestyles we currently live in.
City 21 portrays a theme that all can relate to—a drastic need for change in our lifestyles and the ways we conduct business in our cities in order to keep our planet more livable for future generations. Zelov and Cousineau’s latest documentary succeeds in capturing the everyday reality of the issues facing the 21st century urban landscape while maintaining a focused approach towards sustainability throughout the film. The film delivers valuable insight from various perspectives on city planning history, sustainable approaches in design by transporting the viewer to various parts of the western world.”
