Using a 1950s film about the suburbs, “Built In Their Image” critiques the way suburb developers advertise to citizens. Through a juxtaposition of archival sound and contemporary image, the film asks how much notions of conformity, utopia, and mass-consumption have changed the concept of community since the 1950s until the present day.
