The woman-body versus the tractor-city: an architectural and symbolic erasure. A desmemorization. In the midst of brazilian’s biggest political crisis, AFETO (doc; 15') is an experimental short-film about architecture, Brazil's historical memory and female occupation of the urban space. Besides performances, the film uses archive images of majors public architecture projects and openings in the brazilian metropolis over a half century , questioning the impartiality in urban planning and the social role of women in cities’s construction . The narrative merge sci-fi, thriller and documentary language to talk about a ghost-city where denouncing memory is the first step to recreate it.
