»Willkommen im Alptraum der Realität!«
Soziale Gewaltkonflikte im brasilianischen Gegenwartskino

Synopsis: This article shows how vividly violence - as part of the social reality - enters contemporary Brazilian cinema. While successful film makers like Fernando Meirelles or José Padilha emphasize a captivating, audience-oriented documentary style, less known directors such as Beto Brant or Toni Venturi focus on an inner reality based on the subjective experience of a morally degenerated society.
