Architect and urbanist Sérgio Bernardes (the film director’s father) designs a hypothetical zoning plan to rescue a city on the path to ruin due to chaotic and unorganized development. The seemingly long takes are in contrast to the editing, which is meant to evoke chaos and emphasize the ironic progression


Sérgio Bernardes Filho (1944–2007) graduated from IDHEC (Institute for Advanced Cinematographic Studies) in Paris. Whilst in France, he focused on theatre and music. He joined the Invention Cinema trend with his Desesperato (1968). The majority of his works consist of documentaries and video installations.
