A Machine to Live In – SOLD OUT

Brasilia, an architectonic failure or the pinnacle of modernism? Oscar Niemeyer, Lucio Costa and Joaquim Cardozo designed “the city for the future” in 1956. Their utopia ended up as an uninhabited artificial world. A Machine to Live In examines the history of this radical modernism and juxtaposes it with texts by the Brazilian writer Clarice Lispector and the architecture of L. L. Zamenhof, creator of Esperanto. Their concoctions reflect the Brasilia of the space age, a time when a yearning for the future caused friction with a mystical past. Filmmakers Yoni Goldstein and Meredith Zielke take us on a visual adventure that centres on the search for the ideal city.
