If you could make a difference in your city, would you?

This documentary series by filmmakers Chrystelle Maechler and Andreas Krätschmer takes viewers on a candid journey with optimism and compassion. The four 15-minute episodes explore themes related to the economy, environment, food insecurity and social justice which challenges viewers to make the city a more fair and sustainable place while becoming a part of the solution.

With interviews with some community builders and thinkers who are making positive changes day-in and day-out, Resilience Urbaine will not only showcase the spirits championing the future of our cities, but also the ways in which we can help to keep the spirit of resilient cities flourishing for years to come.
