NEWFEST 2019 FESTIVAL: ESPERO TUA (RE)VOLTA – (YOUR TURN)

October 28, 5:15 pm-7:15 pm

$16

Dir. Eliza Capai, Brazil, 2019, 93 mins
Writer: Eliza Capai
Cast: Nayara Souza, Lucas “Koka” Penteado, Marcela Jesus

New York Premiere

Lucas “Koka” Penteado, Marcela Jesus, and Nayara Souza were three ordinary high school students whose lives suddenly changed when the state of São Paulo announced plans to close 94 public schools. In response to corruption and inefficiency in their government, the teens started to organize. Beginning with protests in which local students occupied their schools for weeks on end, the student labor movement reached extraordinary heights in 2015 and 2016, bringing awareness to numerous injustices in Brazil and remedying widespread problems for the country’s poorest residents. That was, until 2018, when Jair Bolsonaro was elected with 55% of the popular vote. As the tides shift against activists and social justice movements, Koka, Marcela, and Nayara are faced with a jarring reality. Charting the country’s recent history through casual voiceover narration, gorgeous archival footage, and intimate interviews, YOUR TURN is a passionate championing of young activists and the future of progressive advocacy, in Brazil and beyond.
