Brazil's Real Drugs War

Drugs are at the heart of modern medicine- yet affording them is a challenge for governments everywhere. The Brazilian constitution has enshrined its peoples' right to health and made it a duty of the State to provide. The government aims to fulfill its promises through a long list of essential medicines provided by the state. In the 1990s, this commitment was tested with the onset of AIDs, which required expensive antiretroviral medication. It led to a rare alliance between the state, civil society and the politicians against multinational pharmaceutical companies and left an important legacy not just for Brazil, but the world. This film reveals Brazil's continuing efforts and also the journey of two of its citizens to access the drugs they need through the court system.

Brazil: A Giant on the Move

Brazil is said to be a sleeping giant waking up to become one of the world leaders. Our film will tell the country's history through the eyes of two families over several generations.

Paulo Mendes DA Rocha: Entre Ideas y Dibujos

Loading...
This book revolves around the drawings and scale models especially selected by architect Paulo Mendes da Rocha, who was conferred the degree of Doctorate Honoris Causa by the Universidad Nacional del Litoral in 2009. The personal selection done by PMdR resulted in a publishing project that included the participation of a group of academics from Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina convened so that, by means of short texts, freely elaborated their perspective on those drawings. The book is, therefore, the result of a collective work whose purpose is to think the architecture from its most common resources: drawing and scale model. PMdR has also contributed with a text specially elaborated for this publication.
