Learning Goal: I’m working on a writing question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.-watch two documentary films that accentuate some very different aspects of contemporary (and future?) urban life. here are the links of the two films : https://vimeo.com/11206466. https://youtu.be/SGJ5cZnoodY. -read the article by Mike Davis entitled “Who Will Build the Ark?” where Davis debates with himself about whether to be optimistic or pessimistic about the future of humanity as climate change, population growth, and global urbanization trends intersect. -write a relatively brief (approximately 3–4 pages, double-spaced) paper reflecting upon these two documentary films and what they suggest to you about our coming global urban future. I expect you to consider and cite the arguments Davis makes and the information contained in the newspaper report on (“Africa’s Rising Cities (Links to an external site.)”.-answer these questions all them in an integrated essay;Questions :Do you agree with the announcer in Welcome to Lagos who states, “You better watch out because people here are already adapting to the extreme urban future far more successfully than anyone in the so-called ‘developed world’”?
Is the world of high tech innovation portrayed in Szenzhen: The Silicon Valley of Hardware a more accurate portrayal of the city of the future than the image we see in Welcome to Lagos? Why or why not? How can we know which one is more accurate?
Do the experiences narrated in either of these films give you any hope that the coming climate crises may still permit “the preservation of human solidarity” (Davis 2010: 45)? Or, in the face of these crises, are we more likely to see “human solidarity itself … fracture like a West Antarctic ice shelf, and shatter into a thousand shards” (Davis 2010: 40)?
Requirements: 3-4 pages
