A meeting with Milton Santos by Tendler, Silvio

A privileged look at the world through the eyes of Milton Santos, the internationally renowned Afro-Brazilian geographer and intellectual. In this film, Santos discusses his critical views on globalization. His belief that an alternative globalization model could wholly enfranchise all citizens of the world gives the viewer a glimpse of hope for the future. An illustrious presence in 20th century social sciences, the man dubbed as "Geographys Philosopher" eloquently elucidates a developing world perspective on the global age.

About Milton Santos

Milton Santos (1926-2001) was a Brazillian geographer and had a first degree in law. He was especially well known for his sharp tongue and criticism. Despite his critical view on the contemporary world, he was a positive thinker. Santos wrote more than forty books. His work "O Espaco Dividido" (English book translation: The Shared Space) is considered a geography classic: in it Santos develops a theory on urban development in underdeveloped countries. Milton Santos won the Vautrin Lud International Geography Prize, which is the highest award that can be gained in the field of geography.
