Screening: Bogotá Change (2009, Denmark, 58 min.)
Sunday, October 2, 2011, 6–8 pm
Bogotá Change is the story of two charismatic mayors, Antanas Mockus and Enrique Peñalosa, who, using unorthodox methods, in less than ten years turned one of the world’s most dangerous, violent, and corrupt capitals into a peaceful model city populated by caring citizens. With Mockus and Peñalosa and key members of their staff as firsthand witnesses, the film uncovers the ideas, philosophies, and strategies that underlie the changes in Bogotá and are now being exported to cities worldwide.
