Described by director Adirley Queirós as a work of “futurist ethnography,” this sci-fi head trip charts the odyssey of an intergalactic traveler who goes on a mission to assassinate former Brazilian president Juscelino Kubitschek and accidentally crash lands in Ceilândia, a suburb of Brasilia founded by the government to keep poor Black people from settling in the capital. A work of dazzling visual imagination, Once There Was Brasilia is a bold, trenchantly funny commentary on systemic racism in Brazil from one of the country’s most uncompromising cinematic voices.
