In the beginning there is the cliche. This is the also the case with film director Adirley Queirós, who began his professional career as a football player. Being rather unlucky in his football career, he switched to film studies at the University of Brasilia. His wonderful work »A Cidade é uma só?«, which tells us the story of the capital city Brasilia is at the same time a critical examination of the frictions and contradictions of Brazil's modernization. After the film, which we hope, would provide us with an interesting starting point for discussions, we are going to have a cultural and culinary treat. Our Brazilian PhD colleagues will offer us their favorite music, Caipirinha, Cachaça and Pão de queijo.

Everybody is warmly welcome!
