‘BRASILIA: LIFE AFTER DESIGN’

January 20 | 7:30 pm

Free
Film still from Brasilia: Life After Design

What would it be like to live in someone else’s 70-year-old-dream of the future? A concrete Utopia designed by architect Oscar Niemeyer and urbanist Lucio Costa, the city of Brasilia sprang from the desert sands in the 1950s, along with the rebirth of Brazil’s democracy. Director Bart Simpson traces the history of this visionary — and perhaps naive — planned metropolis, but the bulk of the 2017 documentary traces the lives of people living in Brasilia today. The city now serves as a backdrop to people’s feelings of isolation and their changing values.
