Mexico City is quickly becoming the drone capital of Latin America. Now local filmmakers are using drones to capture the beauty of this mega  metropolis, home to more than 20 million people.

"We wanted to show how the city is perceived by chilangos [how Mexico City residents are popularly known],‚ÄĚ filmmaker Santiago Arau told Fusion. ‚ÄúWe wanted foreigners to know what it felt like to live here.‚ÄĚ

Within the greater capital, Arau says there are many little cities that only drone photography can properly capture. He's not alone in thinking so; filmmakers across the country are using drones to capture never-before-seen videos of other Mexican cities, such as Monterrey.
