Synopsis

Quebec Premiere

London, 1972: the post-war social values ushered in a wave of Utopian housing projects. One of the most ambitious was Robin Hood Gardens, designed by Alison and Peter Smithson. In this documentary stitched through with fictional narratives, residents witness to the emotional, complex, and sometimes funny history of the project, alongside reflections from experts. Fifty years later, where has Robin Hood gone?
