Fordlandia Malaise

  •   Susana de Sousa Dias
  •   Portugal
  •   Documentary, Expanded Visions, Spotlight: Architecture X Design, Women in Cinema

Founded in 1928 by Henry Ford in an attempt to circumvent the British rubber monopoly, Fordlandia stands in ruin today. Its remains serve as a stark example of a failed colonial project. Fordlandia Malaise expertly utilizes archival material, drone footage, and interviews with locals to craft a portrait of place, time, myth, and memory.

Preceded by Julio Iglesias’s House (Spain), which sardonically details a Shanghai municipality’s attempt to build a replica of Spain using the pop star’s home as an example.
