78  LAGOS REM KOOLHAAS: LAGOS WIDE AND CLOSE – AN INTERACTIVE JOURNEY INTO AN EXPLODING CITY, 2004 With Lagos Wide & Close, the world-famous Dutch architect focuses on Nigeria’s largest, most explosively growing city. Koolhaas shows how the informal, generic city is in fact functional despite the lack of infrastructure. There is potential in the chaotic. As the title indicates, the film quite specifically offers several perspectives on life in the huge metropolis – we follow local Lagosians and experience the city from above in impressive aerial photographs. Dir.: Bregtje van der Haak / The Netherlands:   Lagos Wide And Close – An Interactive Journey Into An Exploding City, 2004
