    • Synopsis
    • The film deals with the political life and literary work of the writer, lawyer and political from the South of Bahia Euclides José Teixeira Neto. Known by the people as “Dr. Ocride”, Euclides Neto excelled in the struggle for Agrarian Reform. He is recognized as one of the greatest Brazilian writers of the 1930’s generation, with 14 published works, in which he placed the rural worker as protagonist of the narratives. With more than 40 years of advocacy, he always defended rural workers. As mayor of Ipiaú-BA (1963-1967), he developed socialist practices, such as “Fazenda do Povo” [People’s Farm], the first successful achievement of agrarian reform in the state of Bahia, projecting the city of Ipiaú as a model city in Brazil. This fact also led him to go through a military inquiry during the dictatorship in 1964. The documentary shows how Euclides Neto directed his life and work to give voice to rural workers in the south of Bahia. His trajectory of resistance dialogues intensely with the conflicts experienced in Brazil today.
