  • 00:00:00 This video explores the history and current condition of Latin American cities. Televisa travel reporter Enrique Acevedo visits various cities in the region, including Guanajuato, Mexico City, Cusco, and Quito, Ecuador. All of these cities have undergone significant transformation since the Spanish conquest of the Americas. Guanajuato, for example, was originally founded as a Spanish colonial outpost on the site of an ancient Aztec city. Cusco was originally the capital of the Inca Empire and is renowned for its elaborate architecture and historical sites. Quito, Ecuador's capital, was founded in 1534 and is one of the oldest and most vibrant cities in the region.
  • 00:05:00 In Latin America, cities have always been seen as an important part of the idea of order and space. The concept of order must be embodied in the territory, and the population must be organized in order to have an idea of order. This order is primordial because after all, many of these two concepts - order and growth - often come down to that. Mexico's history is particularly illustrative of this process. In the early 1800s, the city of Mexico was founded on the ruins of an Aztec city. Over the next 150 years, Mexico's cities grew at a rapid pace, becoming one of the most densely populated countries in the world. Much of this growth can be attributed to the country's centralized government. Today, Mexico has two major cities - Mexico City and Sao Paulo - with a combined population of over 24 million people. Buenos Aires - with a population of just over 12 million - is also among the most populous cities in Latin America and the Caribbean. As these mega-cities continue to grow, they face a variety of challenges, including the need to deal with mass immigration from rural areas. Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, and Buenos Aires are all examples of cities that have grown rapidly and are now among
  • 00:10:00 Brasilia, located in Brazil, is considered one of the most modern cities in Latin America. Its origins date back to the late 19th century, when it was founded as a colony to replace Buenos Aires as the capital of the country. In the 20th century, it experienced rapid growth as a result of its strategic location and its status as the future capital of Brazil. Today, it is home to a third of the Brazilian population. This video features an interview with Oscar Niemeyer, one of the architects behind Brasilia. Niemeyer discusses the city's unique history and its role in modern Brazilian society. He also discusses Brasilia's plans for expanding its tourism industry.
  • 00:15:00 This YouTube video is about Brasilia, Brazil, and its history. Brasilia was built in 1957 and was one of the last demonstrations of the future that Latin America was going to make cities out of all of them. The city has two radical examples of creating cities from scratch - the first being when it was built from scratch, and the second being when it became the capital of Brazil. The city has experienced a lot of change in the past few decades, and its architecture reflects this. For example, the city's center is now spread out over a large area instead of being concentrated in one place. This change is a result of Brazil's changing political and economic status. When it was founded, Brasilia was meant to be the future capital of Brazil - and it has largely succeeded in doing so.
  • 00:20:00 This video discusses the history of Buenos Aires, Argentina, and its relationship with other Latin American cities. It looks at how Buenos Aires grew rapidly following European immigration in the early 20th century, and how the city's architecture and skyline changed as a result. The video also discusses the May Revolution of 1910, which marked the beginning of the city's modern era. By the end of the 20th century, Buenos Aires had become one of the most populous and cosmopolitan cities in Latin America.
  • 00:25:00 The video discusses the idea of "culturing the race cosmic," a mixture of indigenous and European DNA that will produce a new type of man. Vasconcelos, the minister in charge of this project, develops education plans to unite these two groups of people. The video shows images of this new mexican man, projected on the city of Mexico City, by some of the country's most renowned muralists, including Diego Rivera and José Clemente Orozco. The 1960s are a time of profound changes in Latin America, with economic, political and social changes all happening at once. This leads to a sense of anxiety among intellectuals living in the 30s and 40s, who worry that something important has broken down in Latin America and that the country's traditional characters are being replaced by a new, urban mexican identity. This cultural reaction leads to the creation of a movement of intellectuals known as the "Generation of the 30s."
  • 00:30:00 Cities in Brazil shared some processes of the larger Latin American cities, but also experienced their own, very different ones. The landscapes of the Spanish-speaking countries are shaped by the capital's role as a result of which there is almost nothing on the left side of the image. Agriculture, with its capital's most significant representation, has contributed to the industrialization of Latin America in the 1930s. By the 1950s, São Paulo had reached 2.26 million inhabitants and since then has increased by eight times that number, becoming the 18th-largest city in the world in terms of population. Today, poverty is a common denominator in Latin American cities, with vast areas of slums and precarious housing. The lack of contact between cultures is one of the city's most pressing problems. Recent studies have shown that the city's inhabitants have lost their sense of identity, in part due to the violence and social disparities that characterize Brazilian society. The idea of ​​a "Latin American city" is popular, but it is wrong to think of it as a product of a single cultural blend. The reality is that cities in Latin America - like São Paulo - are choosing to confront external conflict. The S&P MidCap 600 Index is moderately weighted with
  • 00:35:00 In "Ciudades de Latinoamérica," we visit the favela of Pereira, Brazil, to find a different story about drug trafficking and violence, which we find among a group of teenagers playing a game of creating a miniature replica of their neighborhood. They attracted producers of Brazilian cinema to help organize and collect funds, and then created an urban development organization. The model continues to be a source of games that reproduce daily life in the favela, with the good and the bad of the neighborhood where these kids grew up. The problem is that we are placing these kids, and many others like them, in a situation of extreme risk, by having them engage in turf wars with police and drug dealers. Today, according to UN estimates, there are over 20 million people living in Latin American cities, and one in every two people lives in an urban area in Latin America. This statistic is much more dramatic in cities, where 75 percent of the population lives. Cities in Latin America are also more dangerous, with six people dying in Shootouts between police and traffickers since the early morning of this war operation. Today, in Mexico City, according to estimates by the World Bank, 73 percent of the population lives in urban areas, and by 2030,
  • 00:40:00 The video discusses the differences between the growth of cities in Latin America in the 20th century, which were not simultaneous nor proportional. One notable example is the difference between Mexico City and Buenos Aires, as they are two cities with very different processes in terms of urban knowledge. Mexico City has grown rapidly since the early 20th century, while Buenos Aires has only grown moderately since the middle of the century and many migrant workers have developed within the city, but the growth has been especially in the outskirts. This has created a different type of marginalization and exclusion, as in other Latin American cities. In Mexico City, the growth has been incredibly fast. Migration flows are overwhelming - many come to Mexico City - and it has had a truly remarkable growth rate, which is not discouraging. It is known that here there is no future, but we also know that in other places there is no present. So, people's desires for a present change to a lack of certainty about having a basic future in the city, which had three million inhabitants in 1950 and reached 15 million by 1980. From that point on, the city center - Federal District - has stopped growing, and even lost population. However, migrant flows to the periphery have also brought new growth, albeit slowly, and without
  • 00:45:00 Montevideo, the capital of Uruguay, is home to 42% of the country's population, and it makes Uruguay the state with the greatest proportion of urban residents in Latin America. I think it's impressive that Montevideo, as a city with a strong secular streak dating back to early, strong Chilean influences, was the last country in the world to hold a referendum on privatization, and the majority of the population voted against it in 2004. Furthermore, I think it's remarkable that it has been able to maintain this level of public space even as the city's population has continued to grow. The city's challenges include environmental issues like water pollution and a lack of sanitation, as well as social issues like high levels of poverty. However, I think that the city's ability to face these challenges and maintain its sense of dynamism is a testament to its strong educational and health systems. I think that it's important for the Uruguayan government to think about these issues in a strategic way, and not scare its citizens too much, in order to avoid creating a sense of panic in each individual. However, I think that we as a society need to be willing to make some difficult sacrifices in order to resolve these problems.
  • 00:50:00 The video discusses the importance of Latin American cities, and how they are constantly growing due to the influx of immigrants from all over the world. Cities in Latin America are extremely rich due to this diversity, and because they have been able to build a rich, vibrant landscape over the years. Cities in Latin America are also able to have a large impact on the country as a whole, and the images of Latin American cities have become symbols of hope for many people. Cities in Latin America are growing rapidly, and this trend is likely to continue for many years to come.
