Names of rivers are mostly feminine, of mountains masculine and cities neuter. The photo-film Cities discovers in Berlin, Budapest and New York a whole series of other cities hidden behind mirrors and fissures, and gives them women’s names. Beneath the surface it discovers our behaviour, both human and inhuman. It compresses urban addictions and dangers until we viewers from all over the world recognize ourselves as those portrayed. We are at home in the cities hidden beneath the real ones.
