Three film documents reflect on a central question of urban life in different ways: what leeway exists for young people to take possession of their own space in satellite cities and large housing estates permeated by technology and regulation? Gustav Deutsch’s first film allows an ethnographic look at youth rituals, Robert Dornhelm’s report, and Rene Brueger’s short film provide unique historical documents of youth culture and intergenerational conflicts of the 1970s and 1980s in Vienna and Graz.

This film would have been part of the program „Whose Streets? Our Streets!“ in the Diagonale’20 historical special Sehnsucht 2020 – City and Desire.
