Shadows are moving in the silence of night. They are many and determined, and darkness hides their faces like a mask. The silence unites them in a common goal. Made by the film collective MLB (Movement for struggle in the districts, towns and favelas), the film was shot during various nights of occupation and (re)construction, in order to autonomously counter the housing problems of thousands of Brazilians. It magnificently hi-jacks the conventional ciné-tract, which is most often based on the verbal development of a political discourse. Here, the image and especially the finely worked sound track prove more than enough to communicate the need to act (occupy, even illegally), and to express the anger of a people forsaken, even humiliated and assaulted, by the authorities.
