Films from Magnasanti with John Wilson

Screening to be followed by discussion with John Wilson

In 2010, an obsessed gamer designed the perfect game of Sim City that he mysteriously titled “Magnasanti.” Achieved through a repeating pattern of clustered high rises, “Magnasanti” exposes the hellish consequences of top-down civic design. In “Films from Magnasanti,” documentarian John Wilson curates a program of short films inspired by the ethos of this fictional metropolis, culminating in the director’s newest work-in-progress that explores the way “Magnasanti”s philosophy manifests itself in New York City.
