#City by Factory Fifteen
Genre-blurring vocalist Gaika teams up with director collective Factory Fifteen for a dreamlike world tour of the urban experience. A dynamic study of four extraordinary cities is the latest film in Audi’s series exploring how the best things in life are impossible to define.

#City, by Factory Fifteen is a film that takes us on a global adventure through the urban experience. A dynamic and visual love letter to the city, the film interweaves moments of strength, individuality and self-expression. It invites you to experience life through the eyes of characters in four extraordinary cities: La Paz, Tokyo, London and New Orleans. #City stitches a hybrid metropolis, narrated by the evocative vocalist Gaika—known for taking London’s underground music scene by storm before being signed to Warp records in 2016—the film sees Kibwe Tavares and blurring what is familiar yet nuanced across any city by Jonathan Gales of south London-based director collective Factory Fifteen.
