Framed by two violent deaths—the apparently inexplicable suicide of a young gay man, and the murder of Drummer Lee Rigby outside the Royal Artillery Barracks in Woolwich in May 2013—Men in the Cities is a compelling piece about harm and complicity, and about the forces that shape our relationships.
Through fractured snapshots of seemingly disconnected lives, Men in the Cities presents a challenging but radically humane portrait of how we live now.
