One evening, by chance, the filmmaker arrives at Milton Keynes, an English ‘New Town’ the existence of which he had never been aware of. A city at odds with his intuition, scornful of his judgment, and so becomes his subject and muse. On his route, alone with his camera, from the outskirts to the town centre, he strikes up the odd acquaintanceships. A beer drinker, a family inspecting a model home, a ‘shepherd’ of shopping caddies. Amongst those is also Derek Walker, the city’s first chief architect and planner, only 32 years old at the time of its conception in 1967, who guides us through its workings even while taking issue with today's reality. Filmed over several years, primarily as a self-shooter documentary, Conversations in Milton Keynes is Ingo Baltes’ first film.
