This captivating documentary explores the proliferation and lack of regulation of billboards in several of the world's greatest metropolitan cities.
You can turn a page, change a channel or close a window on your computer, but you can't erase a billboard from a landscape. This Space Available is a captivating documentary that takes us to several of the world's greatest cities — including Toronto — to explore outdoor advertising's proliferation and dire lack of regulation. The film considers the blurry line dividing art and ads, questions the economic viability of billboards and asks: at what point does advertising become visual pollution? It also shows how ordinary citizens combat the excesses of advertising — some legal, some not so much. Either way, the film proves we shouldn’t remain passive recipients to the hard sell.
