BRAZIL, THE GREAT LEAP BACKWARDS
The squandering of a democracy beacon
Following President Dilma Rousseff's impeachment, Brazil entered a time of great political instability. The members of Parliament who drove her out are often corrupt themselves and charged for that, sometimes even for murder.
Between democracy and government graft, this film explores the situation of a country where the incredibly powerful and partisan media seems to have confiscated the people’s voice.
Through Gregorio Duvivier, one of Brazil's most popular humorists and the spearhead of a new online digital resistance, we unearth the dream of a Brazil that could reinvent itself as a model for the whole continent.
