    The irrefutable proof that Brazil tolerates the killing of the poor and black – Documentary registers memories of black Brazilians affected by Military Police massacres

    ...the number of homicides coming out of Brazil are more synonymous with a country that at war than a country that officially ended a 21 year military dictatorship nearly 30 years ago. And although people still don’t like to admit the influence of race, the irrefutable fact is that such violence affects black Brazilians much more than those who are considered white. Considering such violence, there is also evidence that this constant victimizing of the poor, black population is actually an agenda that was planned decades ago. A powerful documentary will attempt to give voice to some of the many black faces who have mourned the deaths of friends and family members that were victims of these shocking massacres that are far too regular a part of Brazilian life than many would like to admit.
