Brasília is a bold urban experiment and a city unlike any other. Conceived in 1956 on an uninhabited site in the geographic center of Brazil, the city was intended to be a fresh start for the new political order, free from the messy colonial baggage of the previous capital, Rio de Janeiro. This atmospheric tribute to the sights and sounds of Brasília’s large-scale modernist achievement pans across urban vistas and images of city dwellers moving through the enormous spaces between buildings.
"I first visited Brasília in 2004. I had heard about the city’s buildings, but to be surrounded by them was something else entirely. It was like walking in a futuristic museum…an often isolating combination of concrete and sky, positioned in the middle of the desert.The utopian city plan itself is about micromanaging life and can’t substantially change, but people change all the time. This became my question: how can people connect in a city built on division? How do you live in someone else’s idea of community? Over the years as the people I met helped me understand the layers of this unique place, the film became a meditation on the life that begins when the design has ended."

This event is free and open to the public but registration is required.

Assine a petição para enviar um e-mail ao Deputado Rodrigo Maia

O MEC insiste em manter a ideologia de gênero na BNCC, ignorando e atropelando a vontade da maioria dos brasileiros.
Se não fizermos nada, a BNCC será homologada em novembro e todas as escolas do país (públicas e privadas) serão obrigadas a ensinar ideologia de gênero e outras aberrações.
O que podemos fazer? Leia com atenção, por favor!
Em 2016 o deputado Rogério Marinho (PSDB/RN) elaborou do Projeto de Lei PL 4486/2016, que altera o Plano Nacional de Educação (Lei nº 13.005/2014), exigindo que a Base Nacional Comum Curricular - BNCC, não possa ser aprovada mediante simples homologação do Ministério da Educação, mas tenha que ser votada e aprovada primeiro pelo Congresso Nacional. Neste caso, os deputados e senadores poderiam emendar a Base, antes de aprová-la, retirando todas as referências à Ideologia de Gênero.
O PL 4486/2016, entretanto, está com a tramitação parada na Comissão de Educação da Câmara.
Para poder apressar a tramitação do PL 4486/2016 o deputado Diego Garcia (PHS/PR), em conjunto com outros mais de 400 deputados, protocolou há quatro dias o Requerimento REQ 7331/2017, que requer regime de urgência na apreciação do Projeto de Lei nº 4486, de 2016. Se o requerimento for aprovado, o PL 4486/2016 seguirá diretamente para votação no Plenário da Câmara onde provavelmente seria aprovado. Mas para isso o Requerimento REQ 7331/2017 deve primeiro ele próprio ser pautado para votação no Plenário da Câmara.

Somente o presidente da Câmara, Deputado Rodrigo Maia, tem poder para decidir incluir o Requerimento na pauta desta semana.
Portanto, solicitamos ao presidente da Câmara Deputado Rodrigo Maia que inclua para esta semana na pauta de votação do plenário o RQ 7331/2017 para apreciação do Projeto de Lei nº 4486, de 2016.

Assine a petição para enviar um e-mail em seu nome ao Deputado Rodrigo Maia:

Are you interested in finding out more about our PR and social media campaigns?  We have recently published a case study that we are quite proud of and we wanted to share it with you. There are some excerpts highlighted here in this post,  and you can download the whole slideshow as well at the bottom.

Sleeping Lion is an Boston/LA-based indie electronic duo that began working with Molly, now the PR director at Cyber PR in November of 2015.
Under Molly’s supervision, these hard working artists honed their branding, sound and story to create a campaign that has resulted in over 75 blog placements, 500K Soundcloud plays and over 2 million Spotify streams.
Their EP Patient Creature saw the release of singles “Rug” which premiered on Indie Shuffle, and “Generous” which premiered on The Line of Best Fit. The press picked up on the fact that the EP was written, recorded and produced completely through countless summer Skype calls while Nate Flaks was living in Boston and Noah Longworth McGuire was living in Rome.
Molly targeted media outlets who had covered artists Sleeping Lion was influenced by, (Lido, Jack Garratt, The Japanese House and The 1975), which resulted in multiple placements and inclusion on Spotify playlists, as well as invitations to open for notable acts on tour. Sleeping Lion followed up Patient Creature with their peppy indie-pop single “Handful.”  An incredibly collaborative pair by nature, and excellent networkers, Sleeping Lion soon linked up with duo Opia.
They released a remix of Opia’s hit “YDU” which premiered on EARMILK.
In the summer of 2017, they released their long-anticipated return to the chilled out sounds that made them with the single, “Stop It.” Premiered on HillyDilly via Majestic Casual Records, “Stop It” was branded as “a rippling kaleidoscope of a breakup in real time.” Molly collaborated with the band, label and management with the single getting over 40 placements.
Due to a combination of networking, press hits, and outreach from Molly’s SoundCloud playlist database,  Sleeping Lion is featured on multiple Spotify and SoundCloud playlists.
Thanks to a combination of social media coaching, targeted ads, follow/unfollows and press buzz, Sleeping Lion’s following on social networks has quadrupled, and their overall streams continue to climb.


We are delighted to have a continuing relationship with Sleeping Lion and we love supporting them as they continue to grow.
