  1. Congratulations, very interesting film that captures a bit of the spirit of a few individuals in Brasília Teimosa. For a history of the community as a whole I suggest reading a book that has been released in the United Kingdom and soon in the U.S. and other part of the world. In 2014 Sussex Academic Press published “Rights of Way to Brasília Teimosa: The Politics of Squatter Settlement” by Charles J. Fortin. The book covers the period of 1934-1984 during the bairro’s most tumultuous times including interviews with historical figures engaged in conflicts over the control of the neighborhood.
