2023 Latin American Film Festival – “A Bruddah’s Mind,” Brazil

October 3 @ 5:00 pm 8:00 pm

A Bruddah’s Mind,” dir. Déo Cardoso, Brazil


Portuguese with English subtitles

With Lucas Limeira, Nicoly Mota, Jennifer Joingley, Mayara Braga.

Based on real events, this political drama fuses Brazilian history with international anti-racist movements. Saulo, a black introvert student and fan of the Black Panther Movement, challenges his school in the largely white city of Fortaleza.

After Saulo’s reaction to a racial insult from a classmate, his teachers describe him as a young delinquent and swiftly attempt to expel him ignoring his usually calm and articulate demeanor. Outraged, Saulo refuses to leave the school until justice is done. His solitary occupation ends up challenging the school’s board and mobilizes the entire community. The students did not anticipate, however, the principal’s extreme reaction.

Echoing events from around the world, A Bruddah’s Mind effectively calls out racism, misogyny, and militarism. It reminds us about the importance of activism, political engagement, and the sacrifices that come with it.
