Constitutional rupture, and subsequent institutional coups, are ghosts that sleep beside us and frequently emerge from a normalized superimposition of colonial faces that may seem be different at first, but are ultimately much alike. Through this superimposition and a montage experiment that travels back and forth in history in circular movements, the film gestures a bold move that few have dared: revealing that the enemies of the Brazilian population cannot be divided between the “educated” and the “brutes”. They are but one. *(C.A)
