1969— Marighella, Brazil’s number one enemy, has no time for fear. On the one hand, a violent military dictatorship, with its heinous crimes of torture and infamous censorship. On the other, an intimidated people. Alongside guerrilleros 30 years younger than him and willing to fight, the revolutionary leader opts for action – all the while trying to a keep the promise of reuniting with his son, who he distanced himself from in order to protect.

Censored in Brazil, this directorial debut from actor Wagner Moira (Pablo Escobar, “Narcos”) has reignited Marighella’s divisive legacy and call to activism — at a time when the country has begun a return to the far-right authoritarianism Marighella himself fought against. Co-written with Felipe Braga and produced by CITY OF GOD director Fernando Meirelles.
