VIDEO: Paulo Mendes da Rocha, Tudo è Projeto

The Milan Design Film Festival will screen Tuto è Projeto, the documentary film directed by Joana Mendes da Rocha on the life and work of her father, Pritzker Prize winner Paulo Mendes da Rocha.

Tudo è Projeto is a documentary film about the life and work of Paulo Mendes da Rocha. The Brazilian architect tells his own story and the highs and lows of a remarkable life trajectory throughout a series of revealing interviews with his own daughter, Joana, over a period of ten years.

Paulo, who is now 88, exposes his reflections on urbanism, nature, humanity, art and technique, shedding light on the thinker whose ideas granted him the prestigious Pritzker Prize, lifting him to the Pantheon of contemporary architecture. These two very intimate characters, father and daughter in a fluid, constant dialogue, are also aware that the film is also exposing their privacy and familiar history, playing with intimacy and disclosure, and inverting the roles of director and directed in the ambiguity of life as a constant performance.
