We Don’t Like Samba (40 min.) (2014) (Brazil) Directed by: Cis Berlin
This film exposes the growing class divisions in Brazil and how the movement against fare increases led to a mass revolt. It also looks at the corruption of the government.
Sanitation workers, teachers and transportation workers discuss the fight with the community against the wealthy and also how the World Soccer Tournament and the Olympics are used to benefit big contractors while ignoring the needs of the working class. This documentary exposes the growing divide and the massive confrontation that is now taking place in Brazil.
