CITIES ON SPEED - BOGOTA CHANGE

Denmark, 2009 (MIFF 2010, Our Space)

Director: Andreas Møl Dalsgaard

Bogotá Change

Ridden with crime and drugs, Bogotá was once considered one of the most dangerous cities in the world. Then Antanus Mockus - a man fired from his university job for mooning his students in a fit of rage - was elected mayor, and turned the city into a model for the rest of the world; a rare example of the power of politics to effect change for the better.
