24 City (2008) focuses on the lives of eight people after a thriving factory in China that provides hundreds of jobs is replaced by an apartment complex. Factory 420 is being demolished to make way for multi-story buildings with luxury flats. Scenes of factory operations, of the people who work there and of buildings razed, are inter-cut with stories from workers who were born in the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s - and concludes with two young people talking, each the child of workers, relaying a story of one visit to a factory. This screening is presented as a part of the 2018 Architecture Center Houston Film Festival.The 2018 ArCH film Festival will be hosted November 6 - 16 in partnership with Houston Cinema Arts Festival. The 2018 films provide a platform to question the relationship between development of the built environment and the people who inhabit it. [Organizer's description]
