Feature Films:

Marighella
Dir. Wagner Moura
(Brazil, 155 min., 2019, Portuguese w/ English subtitles; English, Political Drama)
This feature film is a celebration of Carlos Marighella, played brilliantly by musician and actor, Jorge Seu. In 1960s Brazil, ruled by a violent military dictatorship, Marighella leads a small group of guerillas in an armed struggle against the regime. Relentlessly pursued as the government’s number one enemy, Marighella cleverly evades capture; all the while continuing to inflict damage and further enraging his pursuers. With exhilarating action sequences, this rousing historical film has a powerful resonance in the present of Brazil and beyond. Revoluciones Films Showcase.

Nebaj
Dir. Kenneth Müller
(Guatemala, 74 min., 2019, Spanish w/ English subtitles, Political Drama)
The feature film narrates from a human and cruel perspective the facts about the uprising and flight of the “Ixil” Indians in Guatemala, a group that managed to survive the massacre against them led by the EGP (Guerrilla Army of the Poor) in the eighties. The Ixiles were led by Tomás Guzaro (Fernando Cuautle) on their way to freedom. The Guatemalan civil war was one of the bloodiest in Latin America, pointing to the Guatemalan army as responsible for the indigenous genocide when other realities existed that virtually no filmmaker had dared to tell until the arrival of “Nebaj”,  the other side of the coin.

The First Rainbow Coalition
Dir. Ray Santisteban
(USA, 56 min., 2019, English, Activism)
The First Rainbow Coalition charts the history and legacy of a groundbreaking multi-ethnic coalition that rocked Chicago in the 1960s. Comprised of activists from the Black Panthers, the Young Patriots (southern whites), and the Young Lords (a former Puerto Rican street gang), Chicago’s Rainbow Coalition (1969-1971) united poor blacks, whites, and Latinos to openly challenge police brutality and substandard housing in one of the most segregated cities in America. What began as a drive to achieve a voice for poor communities quickly grew into a formidable political movement, attracting the support of other disenfranchised groups and the attention of a threatened FBI and Chicago political machine. Revoluciones Films Showcase.

Once Upon a Time in Venezuela 
Dir. Anabel Rodríguez Ríos
(Venezuela, 99 min., 2020, Spanish w/ English subtitles, Documentary)
Director Anabel Rodríguez Ríos’s striking and mournful ode to her country bears first hand witness to the irreversible consequences of government corruption, while simultaneously capturing the resilient spirit of those most directly affected by Venezuela’s profound economic and political crises. Revoluciones Films Showcase.

Your Turn
Dir. Eliza Capai
(Brazil, 93 min., 2019, Portuguese w/ English subtitles, Documentary)
When Brazil’s economic and social crisis deepened in the last decade, students protested and occupied hundreds of schools, demanding better public education and the end of austerity measures. The feature documentary “Your Turn” depicts the Brazilian student movement from the protests of 2013 until the election of the new president, Jair Bolsonaro, in 2018. Inspired by the collective voice of the movement itself, the documentary is narrated by three high school students, who represent central points of their struggle. The narrators’ jostling for space and time exposes the movement’s conflicts and demonstrates its complexity. Revoluciones Films Showcase.
