This essay film offers a critical geography of Brazil, showing how capitalism and political paranoia have produced a security state, where the upper and middle classes go to ever greater lengths to protect themselves against the perceived threat of the urban poor. But this fortification relies on the working class itself, brought on as doormen and security guards expected to defend private property against the have-nots. As a refrain, we hear from a European landscape painter who tries to “civilize” the Brazilian jungle through strict visual classification. In this way, the film examines two different but interconnected histories of control. (Michael Sicinski)

In the presence of Minze Tummescheit and Arne Hector.
