1969. Marighella didn’t have time to be afraid. On the one hand, a violent military dictatorship. On the other, an intimidated left. Surrounded by guerrillas 30 years younger and willing to react, the revolutionary leader chose action.
In “Marighella”, a film directed by Wagner Moura, Brazil’s number one enemy tries to articulate a resistance front while denouncing the horror of torture and the infamy of censorship installed by an oppressive regime.
In a radical combat experience, he does it on behalf of a people whose support for his cause is uncertain – while trying to fulfill his promise to find his son, from whom he has been distant for years, as a way to protect him.
