Poster & promotional materials

Fordlandia Malaise a film by Susana de Sousa Dias.
The film premiered at 69th edition of Berlinale in the Forum Expanded section.

"Fordlandia Malaise is a film about the memory and the present of Fordlandia, the company town founded by Henry Ford in the Amazon rain forest in 1928.(...)

Nowadays, Fordlandia is a space suspended between times, between the 20th and 21st centuries, between utopia and dystopia, between visibility and invisibility (...).

Giving voice to the inhabitants who claim the right to write their own story and reject the ghost town label, Fordlandia Malaise blends together archival imagery, drone footage, tales and narratives, myths and songs."
