Cities on Speed – Bogotá Change

During the early 1990’s Bogotá was the capital city of Colombia and by far the “worst city in the world”. Doomed by corruption, chaos, poverty and violence, Bogotá was at urban decay.

At the midst of collapse two creative politicians with radically new methods changed the city at a speed never imagined. This is the beautiful story of Antanas Mockus and Enrique Peñalosa two mayors who created citizenship, culture and democracy in a rotted city.

Upfront Films in collaboration of the Danish Film Institut and DR present a film of Andreas Dalsgaard.
