New Documentary Chronicles Visual Polution

"From 240 hours of film, 160 interviews, and visits to 11 countries on five continents, This Space Available charts a fascinating variety of struggles against unchecked advertising and suggests that more than aesthetics is at stake. If Jacques Attali once called noise pollution an act of violence, is visual pollution also such an act? Should we also consider, as one Mumbai resident says, 'which classes of society can write their messages on the city and which classes of society are marginalized?'"

  1. Some billboard ads aren't as attractive as expected but they do have an impact because of the copy. It's true that it takes more than aesthetics when it comes to those outdoor advertisements. good thing the small advertising agency that I work in provides us some training and seminars on making a good ad.
