Directed by Eliza Capai

Lucas, Nayara, and Marcela, three incredibly compelling and self-aware Brazilian young activists, have been protesting for years against the closure of public schools in their low-income neighborhoods. In bracing present-tense, this film uniquely collaborates with its main subjects to tell their stories through their own narration. A vibrant record of their valuable activism becomes a triumphant handbook of action against injustice.
