Life in the megacity is exhilarating and difficult. How do urban spaces enhance or disturb our interactions and intimacy with others?

Nominated for the Nordic Dox Award and the Politiken's Audience Award at the Copenhagen International Documentary Festival.

"No documentary I've seen about city planning has come at the topic from such a resolutely humanistic perspective, or given me more hope for the future."--J.R. Jones, Chicago Reader." ... The global journey strongly enlivens the lesson; it's fascinating how alike and how different cities can be, and more fascinating to imagine what they may become." - David DeWitt, The New York Times
The war show( Visual )

5 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in Arabic and English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the past few years, the world's eyes have been fixed on the disintegration of Syria. Untold news coverage has followed the descent of a nation and and the displacement of its population as they pour into Europe, risking their lives to find refuge. THE WAR SHOW is a first-hand account of the Syrian civil war and the plight of its people from an inside perspective. Winner of the Fedora Award for Best Film at the Venice Film Festival. "Most documentaries could only hope to include as many striking, lingering, moving moments."--Sarah Ward, Screen International. "As both testimony and memorial, The War Show provides a voice for those no longer with us, showcasing that spark of optimism that's still fostering in Syria while darker forces move in to co-opt the movement." - Jason Gorber, POV Magazine

Life Is Sacred by Andreas M Dalsgaard( Visual )

6 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in Spanish and Danish and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Violence is a fact of everyday life in Colombia, where the drug cartels have kept the country in an armed conflict for decades, and where almost all families have lost a loved one. The unorthodox presidential candidate Antanas Mockus does all he can to reverse the vicious circle with an imaginative and positive election campaign. His idealism is both his strength and his weakness in a corrupt political system, where the people have lost faith in being able to make a difference. An inspiring man, and an inspiring story, whose points are relevant far beyond Colombia's borders

9 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In war-ravaged post-Taliban Kabul, Afghanistan young men have discovered the art of bodybuilding and dream of muscle, honour and fame.

Today, competitions take place in the open -- in overcrowded halls where contestants strut their stuff before enthusiastic audiences of robed bearded men who fervently cheer for their favorites

"Four modern urban tales from Cairo, Bogota, Shanghai and Mumbai take a closer look at one of mankind's great challenges: planning for the future citizens in "exploding" cities. In 2030 80% of the world's population will live in cities. Megacities have traditionally been economic and political power centres but today the fastest growing cities are in developing nations. There is an acute need for new models of city planning to prevent collapses under such huge social, economic and environmental pressure. The new challenge is that cities today are made by citizens rather than city planners. Cities on Speed shows how four different megacities are dealing with this new modernity"--DR website

Bogotá change by Andreas M Dalsgaard( Visual )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the 1990s when Bogotà, Colombia was suffering from extreme poverty, social inequality, violence, decaying infrastructure, and political corruption, two politically independent mayors confronted these challenges with unorthodox ideas and strategies that resulted in dramatic changes. In 1994 Antanas Mockus, former president of the National University of Colombia, was elected mayor and implemented a series of innovative and unconventional programs that reduced crime, improved living conditions and civic engagement, and even increased tax collections. In 1998 Enrique Peñalosa was elected mayor and initiated a number of massive urban renewal projects that transformed Bogotà's slums and created modern urban infrastructure
The human scale : Final Cut for Real presents ; directed by Andreas M. Dalsgaard ; screenwriter, Andreas M. Dalsgaard ; produced by Signe Byrge Sorensen( Visual )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"50% of the world's population lives in urban areas. By 2050 this will increase to 80%. Life in a mega city is both enchanting and problematic. Today we face peak oil, climate change, loneliness and severe health issues due to our way of life. But why? The Danish architect and professor Jan Gehl has studied human behavior in cities through 40 years. He has documented how modern cities repel human interaction, and argues that we can build cities in a way, which takes human needs for inclusion and intimacy into account. THE HUMAN SCALE meets thinkers, architects and urban planners across the globe. It questions our assumptions about modernity, exploring what happens when we put people into the center of our planning."-- Container
Cities on speed -- Bogotá : improving civic behavior( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Before long, more than 550 cities worldwide will have a population of more than one million people. By 2030, 80 percent of the world's population will live in cities. Whereas megacities have traditionally served as economic and political power centers, many of today's fastest growing cities are in developing nations. With such rapid and unplanned growth, many of these cities lack the planning and infrastructure to accomodate this population boom. New models of city planning are needed to prevent collapses under such dramatic social, economic, and environmental pressures. "Cities on Speed" shows how four metropolises are rising to this challenge. What are the visions for solving their deepest issues, and will they be successful? In the early 1990s, Bogotá was a city with significant problems: social inequality, pollution, out-of-control population growth, and poor public transportation. Kidnappings were a daily occurrence and the city's homicide rates ranked among the world's highest. When Antanas Mockus, a university president, became mayor in 1993, his experimental leadership transformed the city. With the formation of community watch groups and similar tactics, homicides fell 70 precent, traffic fatalities were cut in half, and many citizens voluntarily paid increased taxes to offset these welcome improvements."--Page 4 of cover
