Where's Edson? // Cadê Edson?
  • Year2019
  • Duration72 min

The Homeless Workers Occupation movement in Brasilia and its outskirts, from 2012 onwards is a struggle for dignity, for social and political representation.

Filmed from a position of engagement, portraying the activist’s fights, their occupations, the police violence, and the cynical treatment by the Brazilian power structures.
Strong political agents, like Edson, and Brazil’s transition from Dilma Rousseff’s impeachment to Bolsonaro’s regime, bring a lucid image of the country today.

Where's Edson? offers a far from condescending approach in which the people own their own voices.

Available to watch in the cinema or Sheffield Doc/Fest Selects in the Autumn.
