* Manda Bala
Brazil is known for its beautiful beaches lush rain forests and vibrant culture. However in recent years the country has developed more of a reputation for corrupt politicians kidnapping and plastic surgery. Manda Bala (Send a Bullet) artfully connects these seemingly disparate elements and conducts a dazzling yet harrowing examination of the tragic domino effect that has reshaped the face of the country and created an entire industry built on corruption.
Featuring a stylish score and articulate interviews with kidnappers, kidnap victims, and the people who profit off them, Jason Kohn s award-winning documentary illustrates how corruption and kidnapping represent two sides of the same violent crime: the rich steal from the poor while the poor steal the rich.
