How did the idea of presenting the Doc no Rio showcase of Brazilian documentary, a part of which is available exclusively online at DAFilms.com, come about? Why does it make sense to be interested in Brazilian film? The curator of the programme Maria Mendes has answers!
PETITION (The Court of Complaints)
2009 / China, France / 124 min
Film unavailable :-(
Sorry, this film is no longer available.
This epic examining the basis of the current Chinese political system is based upon a twelve-year-observation of people who arrived to Peking with complaints concerning their local governments. Most of them were put away to slums where they have, in their effort to achieve some justice, been existing in absolute poverty for up to several years.
