In 1956, at the rebirth of Brazilian democracy, visionary architect Oscar Niemeyer and urbanist Lúcio Costa invented an urban plan and structures that would attempt to micromanage the daily activities of human life. The unabashed goal was to create a space that would give birth to “the new Brazilian citizen.” Now the city’s stark beauty acts as a backdrop to isolation, changing values, and the dynamic power and politics of today’s Brazil. This unique film asks: What is it like to live in someone else’s idea? (2017, 88 min, digital)
