The theme of the June Chillout Zone was city in film. We saw contemporary cities, as well as those from the recent past and those from the future. The city is a very well-received and popular topic used in different genres, including drama, comedy, sensation or sci-fi. During our evening sessions, we took a look at cities from various perspectives.

A great film with one of the cinema legends, Clint Eastwood, who began the famous series about the steadfast officer of the law, inspector Callahan.
