»Chão« by Camila Freitas

(BR 2019, 112 min, OV with English subtitles)
followed by a talk with MST representatives, Laureci Coradace Leal (Paraná) and Luana Carvalho Aguiar (Rio do Janeiro). Moderated by Barbara Marcel and Camila Nóbrega. In cooperation with Situated knowledge / Global ecologies: a collaborative Walkshop Ramble and supported by Forschungs- und Dokumentationszentrum Chile-Lateinamerika (FDCL) and Freundinnen und Freunde der MST, Deutschland

Over a period of four years, Camila Freitas documented the lives of a group of landless workers in the Brazilian state of Goiás. Since 2015, the workers occupy a portion of a bankrupt sugar cane plantation, where they pursue ecological farming, and demand land reform. Chão (Landless) provides insights into the group’s everyday routine, which is divided up between tilling the land, political activism and talk of what a better future might look like. The film delves into the microstructures of local action while demonstrating just how dependent the Brazilian Landless Workers Movement (MST) is on politics, global capital and the agricultural industry. Occupying a space between frank realism and atmospheric density, that draws power from poetic digressions, Chão shows life in 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.

The film program is curated by Florian Wüst.
