Beschrijving

Producer, designer and Workspacer Manuel Toledo curates a second film night especially for Thursday Night Live! From his fascination with architecture, culture and the creative industries, Toledo has established two international architecture film festivals in Santiago, Chile and London, UK. The film H20mx (2014, Mexico) will be screened on 7 March in Het Nieuwe Instituut.

H20mx

The topic is water, but the theme is terrifying: H2Omx shows us how Mexico City is drying at an accelerated speed, showing a deserted landscape for its nine million inhabitants.

Synopsis

Can a mega-city mobilize its 22 million citizens to become water sustainable? Mexico City was built not near water but in the middle of a lake. To supply it with fresh water is such a task that it makes it compulsory to bring it from other states. In addition, once sewage water leaves the city it ends up in agriculture. This film is an environmental case study of the Valley of Mexico as it struggles to save itself while its population grows.

Manuel Toledo

Manuel Toledo is a producer and independent designer who graduated from Design Academy Eindhoven in the Netherlands. He has worked as a designer for institutions such as TU Delft, developing sustainable houses in The Netherlands, and for Urban-Think Tank (U-TT) in Zurich and Caracas on architectural projects in India and the Netherlands. Since 2012 he has co-organised the ArqFilmFest in Santiago, Chile - the first architecture film festival in Latin America, now in its fourth successful edition having grown with each iteration. Following his experiences in Santiago, Toledo founded ArchFilmFest London, launching its first edition in June 2017. In Rotterdam, as President of the Encuentros 2015 Conference, he enabled the gathering of the largest international network of Chilean researchers, entrepreneurs and professionals working abroad to discuss the sustainable future of Chile.
