Good storytelling strengthens social movements
The Good Life (by Colombian-born, New York-based artist Carlos Motta, http://la-buena-vida.info) is a video project composed of interviews with pedestrians on the streets of twelve cities in Latin America shot between 2005 and 2008. The project—which includes Internet Archive, a video installation and a series of commissioned texts and articles—examines processes of democratization as they relate to U.S. policies and covers topics such as the interviewees’ perceptions of U.S. foreign policy, democracy, leadership, and governance. The result is a wide spectrum of responses and opinions, varying according to local situations and specific forms of government in each country.
