# HETEROTOPIAS IN CINEMA /// どですかでん (Dodes’ka-den) by Akira Kurosawa

Dodes’ka-den is the first color movie by Akira Kurosawa. It is set in a Japanese slum and explores several more or less dramatic episodes of its inhabitants’ life. The film’s name comes from the onomatopoeia produced by a quite peculiar character who cross the slum thinking he is actually driving a tram, nostalgia of a modernity which produced the even existence of this shanty town which lives in a quasi-total ignorance of the external world since then.
