Where the City Can’t See is the first fiction film shot entirely through Laser Scanning technology, directed by artist Liam Young and written by author Tim Maughan. Set in the Chinese owned and controlled Detroit Economic Zone (DEZ), in a not-too-distant future where Google maps, urban management systems and CCTV surveillance are not only mapping our cities, but ruling them.

Where the City Can’t See è il primo film di fantascienza girato interamente con la tecnologia di Laser Scanning, con la regia dell’artista Liam Young e scritto dall’autore Tim Maughan. Ambientato nella Zona Economica di Detroit (DEZ) di proprietà dei cinesi e controllata dagli stessi, in un futuro non troppo lontano dove i sistemi di gestione urbana di Google maps e videosorveglianza CCTV non solo mappano le nostre città, ma le governano.
