Splendeurs et misères de Brasilia
(Conterrâneos velhos de guerra)

by Vladimir CARVALHO


The most dramatic episodes in the building of Brasília, as seen by the workers who were kept away on the outskirts after the building was completed and were never able to live in the very city they had built. The climax of the film is the untold story of the massacre that killed the candangos (the Brasília workers) in 1959 on a building site.
