SYNOPSIS - Linkeroever is a suburb of Antwerp. This piece of land, surrounded by highways, industry and a river, is cut off from the city and lives its own life. For decades it has been the perfect wasteland to project plans for the future city. Napoleon, Le Corbusier, Henri Van de Velde and many others dreamed their ultimate city on Linkeroever but without result.

 Annapolis, Giant City is a film in which architecture and urban design are directly related with the people who live in it. In our human urge to control things, architects and inhabitants keep on dreaming the city and shaping their lives.
