Um Dia . . . Maria

Brazil, 1986 (MIFF 1987)

Director: Marco Antonio Simas

The film shows the daily life of a young music student whose routine, as well as that of most Brazilians, suffers a sudden and violent interruption when the military forces take hold of the government. Mixing fiction with audio-documentation, the film is about an historic moment in the 20 year reign of Brazil's government.
