Brazil [electronic resource]: Greatest Country of the World

Nowadays Brazilians are proud not only about soccer and samba, but also for having one of the fastest growing economies in the world. Over two weeks, our hosts travel on the only passenger line in Brazil from the coastal city of Vitoria and the megacity Belo Horizonte in the interior, and along the way they get insight into the Brazilian mindset from fellow travelers. Brazilians like embracing each other - in contrast to Europeans and Americans. For them this is a necessity of life, says Leticia, an aspiring journalist. Sandra is convinced that Brazil is the greatest country in the world, she says, "Everyone who left this country wants nothing more than to return to Brazil.

Odô Yá!: Life With AIDS

Loading...
This is the affirming story of how Candomble, a Brazilian religion of African origin, has become a source of strength and power for a group of AIDS sufferers. Shot in Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo and Bahia, it shows the rituals of Candomble and the celebration of Carnival. It features the personal struggles and words of wisdom from those whose faith have brought endurance and pride.

On the Street (Olho DA Rua)

Loading...
Street life in Rio de Janeiro is astoundingly varied. There are more ways to earn a living than any North American can imagine. In this colorful film, Sergio Bloch, who has a special affinity for recording the pulse of urban life in his native Brazil, presents a variety of performers, vendors and special artisans. The film begins with a knife grinder, who not only sharpens tools, but plays Happy Birthday on his grinding wheel to attract customers. There is an animal trainer whose dogs perform tricks, a street photographer who really wanted to be a student, a herbalist who forages within city limits for plants that bring the Amazon to a city square. Some of the physical stunts are amazing: a one-legged soccer acrobat, jugglers who have 50 seconds at traffic lights for their acts. Thes [...]

Brazil's Real Drugs War

Drugs are at the heart of modern medicine- yet affording them is a challenge for governments everywhere. The Brazilian constitution has enshrined its peoples' right to health and made it a duty of the State to provide. The government aims to fulfill its promises through a long list of essential medicines provided by the state. In the 1990s, this commitment was tested with the onset of AIDs, which required expensive antiretroviral medication. It led to a rare alliance between the state, civil society and the politicians against multinational pharmaceutical companies and left an important legacy not just for Brazil, but the world. This film reveals Brazil's continuing efforts and also the journey of two of its citizens to access the drugs they need through the court system.
