My Playground, the art of Parkour and Freerunning all over the world

Director Kaspar Astrup Schroder accompanies Team JiYo across five countries in its incessant exploration of urban space through the art of Parkour and Freerunning. While facing the obstacles in the landscapes of concrete maneuvering with their body in search of unique and puerile sensations, these acrobats of the city tell us their testimony on the qualities of this vibrant lifestyle based on an intense relationship with the urban architecture.

It is precisely this symbiosis between the body in motion and the city buildings the starting point for the narrative of the film. Architect Bjarke Ingels has his innovative residential buildings intervened by Team Jiyo with the aim of finding a new movement between people and its urban surroundings. The progressive tone of the Ambient music that accompanies the clean images of a dynamic camera is the perfect score for this journey of the body in a city of infinite possibilities.
