Dir Wagner Moura
With Seu Jorge, Ana Paula Bouzas, Bella Camero, Herson Capri
An urgent and intense debut from journalist, musician and actor Wagner Moura, this is a portrait of a highly controversial figure, the African-Brazilian poet and politician Carlos Marighella (compellingly played by famous actor-musician Seu Jorge). In response to the erosion of human rights following a military coup in 1964, Marighella takes to the streets to fight ‘the power’. Co-produced by City of God director Fernando Meirelles, the film has yet to be seen in its native Brazil, where its premiere has been indefinitely postponed.
