Movie Info & Cast

Synopsis

A searing and energized portrait of one of Brazil's most divisive historical figures, Afro-Brazilian poet and politician, the legendary Carlos Marighella - played by famous Actor/Musician Seu Jorge (City of God). Driven to fight against the erosion of civil and human rights following the CIA-backed military coup of 1964 and the brutal, racist right-wing dictatorship that followed, the revolutionary leaves behind his wife and son to take up arms, becoming a notorious enemy to the power structure. Relentlessly pursued as the government's number one enemy, Marighella cleverly evades capture, all the while continuing to inflict damage and further enraging his sadistic pursuers.

Trivia

  • The film's domestic release was initially held back due to fear of it being hampered by ongoing calls to boycott it by conservatives and the government of recently elected right-wing Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro who claims, among other things, that the country's 21 years under military rule - between April 1964 and March 1985 - was not a dictatorship.
