Bogotá Change

Andreas Møl Dalsgaard, Denmark, 2009DigiBeta, Colour, 58'

A vaccine against crime. Weapons melted down for baby cutlery. “Bogotá Change” is the story of two charismatic mayors, Antanas Mockus and Enrique Peñalosa, who, with unorthodox methods, in less than 10 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 first hand witnesses, the film uncovers the ideas, philosophies and strategies that underlie the changes in Bogotá and which are now being exported to cities worldwide.
