Brasilia: Life After Design is the story of a city in conflict between its environment and its people. A true modernist experiment, Brasilia is considered by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Despite the population growing every year, the city plan itself cannot change. It was designed for 500 000 people, and now over two and a half million live within its borders. Despite its designers’ best intentions, people were secondary considerations. And in order to live there, people have to break the city’s rules.
The film is directed by multi-award winning filmmaker Bart Simpson, best known for his work on films such as ‘The Corporation’ and ‘Big Boys Gone Bananas’. Also, we are proud that Bart is collaborating in Scotland with award winning editor, Colin Monie ( ‘Water’, ‘Hallam Foe’, ‘Magdalene Sisters’, ‘Young Adam’)

Director: Bart Simpson
Producers: Lucie Tremblay (Lowik Media) & Aimara Reques (Aconite Productions)
