Medellin, Colombia, Nov. 2011

In the shadow of current Medellin’s megaprojects plenty of small-scale initiatives have grown, offering alternative socio-cultural developments. Those critical approaches in the form of resistance and proactive interventionalism question current urban development mechanisms based on control and exclusion of the majority. Environmental activism, new forms of participation, alternative education or crowd-based cultural jamming represent diverse ways to construct collective spaces, quite the opposite to idea of creating territories. This movie tries to trace a variety of self-generated initiatives and contrast them with over-scaled plans of municipality by putting forward the perception of kids, cyclist movement and local artists.
