Film Screening: La Ola Verde (Antanas’ Way)

La Ola Verde (Antanas’ Way) tells the intimate story of Antanas Mockus’s eight-week campaign for the Colombian presidency in 2010. The film focuses on his postmodern, open-source campaign that rallied young voters.

The eccentric candidate ignited a new social movement, causing online frenzy and flashmobs throughout Bogotá. The documentary team was granted exclusive access to the day-to-day workings of the campaign.

Please join us for a special screening and a post-film discussion with the director and the producer.
