Editor's note: Before he became the bandleader for "The Late Late Show With James Corden," performance artist Reggie Watts appeared in the SXSW film "Creative Control," a satiric vision of the near future directed by Benjamin Dickinson. But that wasn't the first time Watts, also known for his role as the sidekick on "Comedy Bang! Bang!", collaborated with Dickinson on a quirky take on the world of tomorrow. The filmmaker also directed a short film early last year based on an idea created by Watts and scored by synth artist Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, which we're happy to premiere here. Watts provided Indiewire with the following description of the film:
An alternately factual documentary presented by nameless hosts Reggie Watts and Carolina Ravassa, "Brasilia" takes viewers on a whirlwind tour of the famed capital of Brazil. In topics ranging from architecture, religious ceremonial practices, and spiritual conscious alignment, Reggie and Carolina traverse some of the world's most impossibly futuristic human landscapes, extolling earnest advice about the culture, practices, and habits of the Brasilienese people. With a synthesizer soundtrack from the late 60/early 70s, BRASILIA exposes the unknown truths of this exotic utopian city nestled in the cradle of South America.
