On the absurdities of an economic crisis-riddled country trying to look powerful and important through architectural grandstanding. Or as peasant singer/songwriter Nel Monteiro sings in the film: "That EXPO World Fair 1998 / And the Belém Cultural Center / Are projects that do not fit / With the country’s misery."
