Come and watch a most amazing documentary film about life in the capital of Brazil: “BRASILIA: Life After Design” with Iberodocs, SEDA and Camões
The city of Brasília – the capital of Brazil – is a mythical place: a concrete utopia born out of the desert. In 1956 at the rebirth of Brazilian democracy, visionary architect Oscar Niemeyer 1907-2012 and urbanist Lúcio Costa 1902-1998 invented an urban plan and structures that would attempt to micromanage the daily activity of human life.
The goal was to create the space that would birth “the new Brazilian citizen”. Now the stark beauty of the city acts as a backdrop to isolation, changing values, and the dynamic power and politics of today’s Brazil.
