Brazil reflects on the double meaning of Terra [Earth]: soil and planet. The planet that houses the human race, beyond any geographical or political distinction. In the first section, the history of Brazil’s capital city, Brasilia, is shown. The city has been built in the middle of nowhere, on land formerly inhabited by indigenous people, pushed away in colonial times to be later placed back in the suburbs of the new modernist town. The second section focuses on five architectural symbols that, in Brazil, are taken as memorials, contextualized as they are in the decolonization dynamics that were behind their construction.
