The German urban planner Thomas Sieverts is stuck on the in-between. In Where We Live Now (a Sieverts-centric anthology edited by Matthew Stadler), he rejects dividing urban from suburban, local from global, anything from anything: We all apparently live in a dynamic, polycentric built environment now. Sieverts is in town for several days of lectures, interviews, and this screening of Police Beat—a crime movie that is really a hymn to displacement. (MoMA recently acquired Police Beat, written by Charles Mudede based on his Stranger column, for its permanent collection.) After the screening, Sieverts, Stadler, and Mudede will discuss. (Northwest Film Forum, 1515 12th Ave, 329-2629. 1 pm, $7.)
