Without dialogues or didactic pretensions, this documentary makes an observation of forgotten spaces in Brasilia. In the landscapes gravitates a historical contradictory way to face the construction of this city.

All Still Orbit. The two Brasilias
The film links together two apparently unrelated moments in the construction of Brasília: the dream by an Italian saint used to justify its creation and a small city built by the workers constructing the new capital to house them and their families.
How do you make sense of a city built on a dream? Are all dreams made equal? Sometimes a documentary can feel like a fairy tale.
