More Earth Will Fall is the universal story of the love between one family and of their struggle for a better life. Given extraordinary access over six years, this documentary offers a rare immersive insight into the lives of some of those caught in the middle of Brazil’s poverty and violence.
More Earth Will Fall benefits from the long period of filming and the intimate relationships established by the filmmakers. The audience become ‘insiders’ in the life of a family struggling against the odds to survive and prosper – a perspective that has been absent from often more sensationalist coverage of Brazil, particularly favelas. Whilst the film’s strength lies in the focus on one family’s life in Rocinha, the story echoes the lives of working class people across the globe as they strive to maintain their hope and faith in a better future.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers.
Food and Drink will be available to purchase at the venue
