Marighella

A searing and energized portrait of one of Brazil's most divisive historical figures, Afro-Brazilian poet and politician, the legendary Carlos Marighella - played by famous Actor/Musician Seu Jorge (City of God). Driven to fight against the erosion of civil and human rights following the CIA-backed military coup of 1964 and the brutal, racist right-wing dictatorship that followed, the revolutionary leaves behind his wife and son to take up arms, becoming a notorious enemy to the power structure. Relentlessly pursued as the government's number one enemy, Marighella cleverly evades capture, all the while continuing to inflict damage and further enraging his sadistic pursuers.
