The movie Brazil is one of my most-loved films for numerous reasons; not only is it visually outstanding but is also full of great ideas and pays great attention to detail throughout. In my illustration I have portrayed the crazy, funny and nightmarish chaos of the movie by creating a voyage of discovery through the various key symbols and elements of the film, summarising the plethora of ideas in one peripheral detail. The illustrated details are molded into the logo shape of the Central Services. The Central Services workers are integral for surgically maintaining the pipe and duct network which grotesquely appears throughout the film. This pipe network snakes through every room, representing the technological world and the ubiquitous connections between the centralized bureaucracy and the lives of the oppressed people. The central system is seemingly an alive network and the pumping veins of Brazil. It’s as if this bureaucratic and mechanistic construct of my Illustration here has a life of its own. This alternative outlook of Brazil is what I primarily wanted to display and is the reason it's such a visually dominant part of my work. The funny, chaotic and truly surrealistically crazy aspects of the film are the reasons that I've chosen these bright, vibrant colours for my poster. Read Less
