Not long ago the Colombian capital Bogotá was considered one of the world's most dangerous cities. At an altitude of over 2,600 metres up in the Andes mountains, seven million people were fighting a daily battle against drug crime, corruption, poverty and, not least, against each other. But in 1995 the colourful and independent Antanas Mockus surprised many by being elected to become the city's Mayor, after having been fired as the vice-chancellor of the university where he had mooned his ungovernable students in a fit of rage. Mockus's anarchistic and untraditional methods set about a social revolution that meant that Bogotá today is a role model for cities such as New York and Mexico City. 'Bogotá Change' tells the story about how this happened, and shows that politics in fact can be both funny and deeply inspiring.
