  • Utopia and Barbarism

    2009. Brazil. Directed by Silvio Tendler. Painstakingly assembled from an amazing array of found footage, Silvio Tender’s historical documentary applies a quote from Oscar Wilde—“A map of the world that does not include Utopia is not worth even glancing at”—to the world that emerged after World War II, taking the concept to the revolutions of 1968 and beyond. It examines the utopias that were born and brought to life—and the barbarism that punctuated them—with startling images and testimonies, creating a moving portrait of a generation that dreamed of changing the world and fought for freedom through a global movement. In Portuguese; English subtitles. 120 min.
