Terroristas: what are the images of terrorists in brazilian films of the 90's and 00's? by Professor Roberto Tietzmann, Professor Cristiane Freitas Gutfreind & Dr Miriam de Souza Rossini

From 1964 to 1985 Brazil was under military rule. Censorship, political repression were state policy. Young guerrillas that opposed the state were labeled as 'terroristas' by the police. In this video essay the authors examine how this word became attached to them, observing it via the films of the 90's and 00's that revisited the decades earlier.
