Marighella is set in 1969 and is based on the life of Afro-Brazilian politician and guerrilla fighter Carlos Marighella. Facing a violent military dictatorship and with little support from a timid opposition, writer-turned-politician Carlos Marighella organizes a resistance movement. Alongside revolutionaries 30 years younger than him and willing to fight, the revolutionary leader opts for action.
At the end of the film screening, we will have a roundtable discussion with:
- Ana Claúdia dos Santos São Bernardo, Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Global Studies, Providence College
- James Green, Carlos Manuel de Céspedes Professor of Modern Latin American History, Brown University
- Paulo Dutra, Assistant Professor in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese, University of New Mexico
