Document 2019
Chão

Fri 25 October 2019

Made over a period of four years, Chão documents the lives of a group of landless workers in the Brazilian state of Goiás. Since 2015, the workers have occupied a portion of a factory site and demanded land reform. The film provides insights into the group’s everyday routine, divided between tilling the land, political activism and talk of what a better future might look like - delving into the microstructures of local political action and life in the resistance. It was only recently that Jair Bolsonaro, the new president of Brazil, added the landless to the list of enemies of the nation and called on landowners to take up arms to defend their property.
