Citizen Lula - Global Indie Film Fest

Citizen Lula

The filmmaker has shot for 16 years Lula da Silva’s trajectory on politics which took him to the Presidency of Brazil. Through unique indie filmmaking, we observe the path that takes him to get elected, reelected, impeachment of his successor and colleague Dilma Rousseff, and Lula’s incarceration process that paved the way to Jair Bolsonaro’s presidential triumph in 2018.
