When Brasilia was inaugurated as the new capital of Brazil in 1960, it was a visionary metropolis which was designed down to the most minute detail. There was only one problem: It was not designed for human beings. BRASÍLIA: LIFE AFTER DESIGN is a melancholy and at times surreal portrait of a modernist masterpiece whose place on UNCESCO's world heritage list means it cannot expand to keep up with the population growth. This is an extremely fascinating film about people who live in painful disharmony with one of the most beautiful cities the world has ever seen.
