Twenty Years Later (Cabra marcado para morrer) (Brazil, 1985)

Directed by Eduardo Coutinho.

In 1964, Eduardo Coutinho started work on a feature film about the assassination of a rural militant activist, employing a non-professional cast that included the activist’s widow.  Filming was stopped by Brazil’s military coup when the widow went into hiding and all but one reel of the footage was seized.  Twenty years later, Coutinho tracked down the widow and showed her the surviving images.  The result is one of the defining portraits of Brazil under the dictatorship and announced Coutinho as a major voice in Brazilian cinema.
