Abstract

Myth, from the Greek mythos: “Mar-velous narration situated outside historic time told by divine or heroic characters. Often interprets the world’s origin or great human events”. The dragon, ex-cept for in China, has always been a symbol of “evil”, but, at the same time, the fire and power represented by the dragon are essential elements for hu-mankind.




The modern city, symbolically under-stood as a dragon(because the individual always finds himself close to the fire, to the urban vortex that represents evolution at the same time as it absorbs us), is based on myths that are already a part of the col-lective imagination. These myths have left remnants scattered throughout the city in the form of statues or architec-tural styles.
In the same way that myths come alive through architecture, films convert ar-chitecture into myth, a modern myth.

Cinema is capable of indirectly my-thologizing a city through storytelling, showing us our reality anew as seen through someone else’s eyes, mirroring a reality that does not exist but that cre-ates the modern myth of the city.
