Acerca da Cana – Documentary

The short documentary Acerca da Cana talks about feudalism and the fight for land in rural Pernambuco.

To give a little more detail, the film deals with the increasing worth of ethanol in the 90s and the consequent expansion of the sugarcane ‘landlordism’. In fact, there were 15,000 families that were kicked off their land located in the Zona da Mata region of Pernambuco. Dona Maria Francisca, the central figure of the documentary, decided to resist.
