This film tracks the Minhocão or 'giant earthworm': an elevated highway slicing through São Paulo, subtly connecting Brazil’s ambitious architectural past to its troubled political present. On Sundays, when it is closed to vehicles, Paulistas reclaim the highway for cycling, walking or partying. What was once a scar is now almost beautiful.
