Malls R Us. 2008. Canada. Directed by Helene Klodawsky.
Klodawsky and producer Ina Fichman, the team behind Canadian Front 2008 highlight Family Motel, return with a spirited, genuinely surprising documentary about the global phenomenon of urban and suburban shopping centers. The filmmakers traveled from North America, where the shopping mall originated, to recent examples in Poland, Japan, India, and Dubai. Along the way they encounter "dead mall" bloggers and anti-mall activists, as well as proponents like legendary sci-fi author Ray Bradbury, who sees the mall as the modern Main Street of small-town America. 78 min.
