[⏵] ESSAY The daily bread of the oppressed: the film puts an artistic, combative finger in the wound of capitalism. Brazil is marked by social inequality, for many the money earned at work is only just enough to survive on. The divide between rich and poor is growing at a frightening pace. Director Renan Rovida illustrates the social injustices of his home country and focusses on the ruins of the capitalist promise. He contrasts his observations with quotations from Brecht, Adorno, Benjamin and Mário de Andrade and shows up the structures of an unjust system.
