Synopsis

From back cover: "Marta Suplicy is the new mayor of Sao Paolo Brazil- a breath of fresh air after years of municipal apathy and corruption. Her aim is to make Sao Paolo a sustainable 21st century global city.
This program follows Marta as she visits schools, hopsitals, favelas, and a shelter for battered women in her quest to turn the city around.
Interviewed in the program are Professors Peter Marcuse (Columbia University), Saskia Sassen (University of Chicago), and Ed Glaeser (Harvard University), as well as Sheela Patel, director of SPARC (Society for Promotion of Area Resource Centers) and Anna Tibaijuka, the new Executive Director of the United Nations Center for Human Settlements.
