Looking for a new vacation destination? Consider Brasilia, the subject of a short film directed by Benjamin Dickinson that premiered on Indiewire today. The short features Reggie Watts as a friendly tour guide of the city in a disturbing, near-future sci-fi alternate reality. Here’s the description of the film Watts provided to Indiewire:
An alternately factual documentary presented by nameless hosts Reggie Watts and Carolina Ravassa, “Brasilia” takes viewers on a whirlwind tour of the famed capital of Brazil. In topics ranging from architecture, religious ceremonial practices, and spiritual conscious alignment, Reggie and Carolina traverse some of the world’s most impossibly futuristic human landscapes, extolling earnest advice about the culture, practices, and habits of the Brasilienese people. With a synthesizer soundtrack from the late 60/early 70s, BRASILIA exposes the unknown truths of this exotic utopian city nestled in the cradle of South America.
