Copenhagen is widely considered one of the world’s most livable cities, but it wasn’t always this way. Best in the World offers a closer look at the Danish capital’s journey from an industrial city on the brink of bankruptcy to the transformed Copenhagen of today. Celebrated writer and filmmaker Hans Christian Post takes stock of the cost of this transformation, examining inequity within the city’s borders and in the surrounding countryside. Through conversations with architects, activists, and writers, the film asks us to consider who ultimately benefits from the desirable new city.

Following the film will be a Q+A with director Hans Christian Post & journalist Alia Akkam. 

Co-presented with the Consulate General of Denmark in New York and the Ministry of Culture Denmark in New York.

This screening is a part of ADFF:NY 2023
