    • Communist leader, imprisoned and tortured, politician, author of the world renown “Urban Guerrilla Manual”, Carlos Marighella was an important player in the principal political events in Brazil between 1930 and 1969, and was considered as public enemy number 1 by the military dictatorship.
      But, who was this man, a mulatto from Bahia, poet, charismatic, a big samba, beach and soccer fan, a name considered as being un-publishable for decades? This film, directed by his niece, is an affectionate historical reconstruction of a man who dedicated his life to rethinking Brazil and transforming it through his actions.
