Curated by the Architecture Foundation

Code 46

In a near future, impressively depicted by collaged footage of the present – be it Shanghai, Dubai or the Jubilee Line – the world speaks a hybrid international English and borders are fenced-off by biological ID-cards.

This daunting and possible vision of gated urban city-states and desert slums presents an uncannily logical conclusion to the rapid urbanization of the planet, and forms an unsettling backdrop to the film’s story of an ‘illegal’ affair between a genetically incompatible couple.

Starring Samantha Morton and Tim Robbins.

UK 2003 Dir. Michael Winterbottom 92 min.
