Sep 14, 2023 | Health, Social, Videos

Brazil’s polarization has been a key feature of the country’s politics for many years. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has deepened the divide between supporters of President Jair Bolsonaro and those who view his handling of the crisis as immensely problematic. While Bolsonaro’s supporters believe that the pandemic is not a severe health crisis, his opponents are fighting hard to keep their communities safe. In this documentary by Matthias Ebert and Marie-Kristin Boese, viewers get to see the stark contrast between a group of supporters who march through the streets denying the existence of the virus and delivering food to those who’ve lost everything, and the other group of soccer fans who are working tirelessly to protest against Bolsonaro and his administration.
As Bolsonaro’s supporters and opponents clash on the streets of Brazil, it’s evident that the country is more divided than ever before. The documentary goes behind the scenes to show how the crisis has affected people on the ground and why they continue to protest against the government despite the pandemic. Through interviews with different stakeholders, the documentary takes a closer look at Brazil’s political landscape and how this has impacted the country’s ability to manage the pandemic. In the end, viewers are left to form their own opinions on the future of Brazil and the impact of the pandemic on the country’s social, economic, and political fabric.
