Synopsis

In the hypothetical Latin-American country of Eldorado, the idealist, anarchist poet and journalist Paulo Martins fights against the populist governor and the conservative president, supported by revolutionary forces. Paulo is torn between the elite’s madness and the blind submission of the masses.

Our take

Glauber Rocha’s visually electrifying and confrontational film is rightly hailed as a masterpiece of the Brazilian Cinema Novo movement. This is a fierce political fable that aims fire at governmental corruption and class divisions while capturing the stunning poetry of the landscape.
