“Beautiful City”

“Beautiful City”

Susana Ojeda (Colombia-Austria)

This experimental road movie takes us on a journey through Bogotá's Parkway. This linear park designed by Karl Brunner, an Austrian architect, summarizes the European concepts of the garden city. The images of this walk through the park gradually begin to be replaced by 3D images that transform the viewer into an actor in a journey that becomes a bad journey.

The neocolonial exercise of the construction of the city is revealed. The city cracks, its human and non-human inhabitants transform it, roots raise bricks, the sounds of pots and pans interrupt normality, protest songs call for transformation, street art calls for memory, monuments fall.
