WE MUST BE DREAMING
David Bert Joris Dhert | Brazil, Belgium 2016 | 61 Min. | OmeU
The FIFA World Cup in 2014 and the Olympic Games in 2016 brought Brazilian flair into the living rooms across the world. The host country hoped for economic upturn, however, disillusionment set in long before these major sport events even started: eviction, police violence, and protests were on the agenda. Entire settlements were pulled down over night in order to provide the required infrastructure. We Must Be Dreaming tells about these stirring years from the perspective of an indigenous human rights activist, a Pelé impersonator, as well as a photographer in Rio de Janeiro.
