“Our flag will never be red” shows the struggle of independent journalists in Brazil to break the blockade imposed by 6 families that dominate the country’s information system.
Brazil has “6 Berlusconis” who together control more than 90% of the national audience in all types of media. According to the interviewees, the Berlusconis were responsible for one of the biggest journalistic frauds of all time: a massive deception that destroyed people’s trust in the traditional press and threw Brazil into fascism.
By examining the role of the Brazilian media in the socio-political events that occurred between 2013 and 2019, the film answers a question that is intriguing everyone:
Who is Bolsonaro, and how did he become the president of the world’s sixth most populous country?”
Temas Nonviolence: MORAL, ECONOMIC, PSYCHOLOGICAL.
In the film, FICNOVA highlights the denouncement of the manipulation of the media in response to the economic interests of companies and the courageous response of alternative media as a way out of a corrupt model that is replicated in many countries.
