REVIEWS I would have never seen this film if I hadn't gone to the Santa Cruz Pacific Rim film festival. It's a movie worth passing on to others if they haven't seen it yet. A positive documentary about the city of Curitiba, Brazil and how they re-created their city into a healthy, green environment with the little money they had. It made me feel like so many changes are possible for a better place to live in America. Please consider this movie, it's only an hour long!-- L. Mahaffey
This film is a must see for anyone involved in urban/regional planning, city councils, and concerned citizens. Curitiba debunks the myths that logical solutions to cities biggest problems only exist on paper or take billions of dollars to develop. A well made and inspiring documentary. When you see what they've done here, you will realize that our standard of living in the US is not really so high and solutions are far easier than our leaders lead us to believe. -- H Livingston
