Venceremos (We Will Win)

A title taken from a British Jazz Revival’s classic, a song from a band called Working Week, which had two versions, the first in a record with the participation of Tracey Thorn, Claudia Figueroa and Robert Wyatt (7" Bossa Version).

This is a list of ideological utopias, against conservatism, that victory of the current regressive world. Especially those that failed because the world is below possibilities and beyond the material. Material world and of film too, ie, movies that combines the political matter with the matter that films are built of.

To better explain, some lyrics of that song:

“A new world in the making,/it’s there for the taking,/Santiago to Rio,/the moment is waiting./The lost will be found,/and named out aloud,/photos carried high,/the lives they’re denied./A nation is breathing,/in cities and farmland,/in bedrooms and boardrooms,/life held in suspension,/a breath that is scented,/with warmth and friendship,/and we sleep here as lovers,/companeros in cover,/we’ll tread a greater end
and we’ll move my friend,/into safer light,/knowing that we will win.”
