Filmed and directed by Kelly LoudenbergInfinite Freedom for a New Baltimore is Graham Coreil-Allen’s response to Guggenheim curator David van der Leer’s to request for our “wildest dreams are for American city of the future”: a manifesto for the sustainable redevelopment of Baltimore through direct action and creative participation. van der Leer asked:

If you were mayor of your city: what would you want it to look like in 20 years? Would you want to use your special creative talents to do new infrastructural proposals? Develop social schemes? And what will make your American city stand-out from other cities around the world? And what can city officials, planners, policy makers and developers do to make cities better places?
