Global Shopping Village

 
Das Profitstreben der Immobilienbranche hat nicht nur das globale Finanzsystem an den Rand des Ruins geführt, es verändert auch dramatisch unsere Städte und unsere Lebenswelt. GLOBAL SHOPPING VILLAGE begleitet einen Shoppingcenter-Entwickler und seine Branchenkollegen. Sie planen und realisieren Einkaufszentren. Wir lernen ihre Strategien kennen, folgen ihnen in die verschlungenen Netzwerke des internationalen Kapitals, finden aber auch die konkreten Auswirkungen ihres Tuns: An drei repräsentativen Orten in Österreich, Deutschland und Kroatien begleiten wir KritikerInnen und Brancheninsider. Wir besuchen eine Stadt, die ihre Funktion verloren hat, sehen die Blüten von Boom und Blase und erleben, wie sich allmählich Widerstand zu formieren beginnt. (Lotte Schreiber)

Shopping centers have been booming for years. They are popular for the customers but also controversial in public discussions. They are changing economic structures, social relations and form the appearance of our cities. GLOBAL SHOPPING VILLAGE follows this movement: the film meets important players in development, marketing and architecture, also politicians, consumers and retailers in different countries all around Europe – in Germany for example, where a new trend of inner city shopping malls is currently arising. On the other hand in Eastern Europe a boom and bubble was recognized.
