Synopsis:

Some 3,200 people die every day around the world in traffic accidents (like a Twin Towers collapsing every day). The air we breathe in our big cities is unhealthy and poisonous, especially for children and the elderly, the very people we should be looking after most. After decades of justified protests by activists in different fields, it seems that only recently are state governments moving towards significant changes in the way we travel around and beyond cities, and their environmental sustainability. Is the electric car the solution? What would cities be like without cars, or with very few? Why haven’t we had this debate earlier? What are the interests behind the irrational imposition of the automobile? How have we been sold—or forced to buy—the idea? In this episode we interview specialists in mobility and environmental health: Olga Margalef, Manu Fernández, Carolyn Daher and Pedro Bravo. With their help, we join a debate that is long overdue, like so many other things, adding our voices to a message and a filmic discourse that is also a call to action, with the intention of contributing to the common good.
