Here's a visual treat for your Friday afternoon: a video designed to promote tourism in Mexico City, that's actually beautifully shot, and a joy to watch. It's heavily influenced by Koyaanisqatsi and/or the work of cinematographer Ron Fricke -- virtually every shot is in slow- or fast-motion. There's not a whole lot going on here, aside from beautiful cinematography -- but that's the point. Here's how the producers describe it:

Una producción del Fondo Mixto de promoción turística de la Ciudad de México producido por AZOTEA POST Co DIRECCIÓN: LUIS MANDOKI, MARIANA RODRÍGUEZ Co FOTOGRAFÍA: ALBERTO ANAYA, ESTEBAN ARRANGOIZ FOTOGRAFÍA ADICIONAL: ADOLFO DAVILA Co EDICIÓN: MARIANA RODRÍGUEZ, YOAME ESCAMILLA MÚSICA: ALEJANDRO CASTAÑOS

Check it out. Nice, right? Kinda makes you want to visit la Ciudad de México, even!
