Niemeyer - Life is a Breath of Air is a film that, without claiming to be groundbreaking or brilliant as the character who serves as its theme, uses the clarity of its lines and poetic forms to (re) construct the story of the greatest icon of Brazilian Modern Architecture, a man whose story is linked to a century of change.
The documentary shows how Niemeyer revolutionized Modern Architecture with the introduction of the curved line and the exploration of new ways to use reinforced concrete. Niemeyer also speaks about his life, his ideal of a just society and metaphysical questions, such as the insignificance of man in the Universe.
