A note from independent filmmaker David Conover on why he chose this film:
Cartagena is a port city in northern Colombia on the coast of the Caribbean Sea. Although the city was officially founded in 1533 as an extension of the Spanish empire, the history of human settlement here extends as far back as 4000 B.C.E. One of the subjects in this short film by the filmmaking group called Jungles in Paris explains how “walking” is one of the best ways to experience the city. Anyone who ventures out upon the switchback paths of the Castillo San Felipe de Barajas fortress—a certified World Heritage Site—is rewarded with unparalleled views of the city and the Bay. Pedestrian travel is the way to go in Cartagena!
