1969. Marighella had no time for fear. On the one hand, a violent military dictatorship. On the other, an intimidated left. Alongside, revolutionaries 30 years younger than him and willing to fight, the revolutionary leader opted for action. In Wagner Moura's,"Marighella," Brazil's number one enemy attempts to articulate a resistance all the while ousting the heinous crimes of torture and the infamous censorship instituted by the oppressive regime. In a radical face off, he fights for a people whose support is uncertain - all the while trying to a keep the promise of reuniting with his son - who he distanced himself from in order to protect.

The Bazilain film Marighella has had its Premiere Canceled.

The political film had been scheduled for its premiere on a notable date marking both the fiftieth anniversary of Carlos Marighella's murder and the Black Awareness Day.

In a statement, producer O2 Filmes reported that the film's premiere, initially scheduled for November 20th, was canceled because the directors were unable to comply with the procedures required by the National Cinema Agency.

 

 

Minister of principle...

Brazil's culture minister resigns after government cancels pro-LGBT TV funding initiative


Link Here24th August 2019
The Brazilian secretary of culture, Henrique Pires, has resigned over what he describes as the conservative government's censorship of arts dealing with LGBTQ+ content. He considered that this was the final straw in a series of efforts to censor diverse culture.

On 21 August, the government suspended a competition launched under a federal initiative called the Audiovisual Sector Fund (FSA) that would disperse from 400,000 to 800,000 reais (around $98,000 to $195,000) to five public television productions across 12 categories such as gender, environment and professional life. In an announcement calling for the cancellation of the competition on 15 August, Bolsonaro specifically targeted four television projects that dealt with gender diversity: Afronte, Tranversais, Religare Queer and Reverse Sex .

Pires said:

It is very clear that I am out of tune with OsmarTerra [minister of citizenship] and the president on freedom of expression. I don't agree that culture can have filters, so I'm leaving.
