Cabra marcado para morrer (1984)

– There are people out there!

A man destined to die, and his legacy: a family torn apart by historical circumstance. The trials and tribulations of filming – and living – under oppression is shown straightforwardly and righteously, with bitter sadness underneath. Brazilian cinema seem preoccupied with both the shame and pride of being »undeveloped«.

A heartfelt documentation of continuing struggle. Interesting, original, and probably cathartic for the people involved. Unfortunately also confusing, clumsy, and rather stuffy. Probably not in my book of determination.

– Who wouldn’t fight for better days?
