Brazilian Dream is a reflection on Brazil today. Brazil has experienced rampant transformation that has reconfigured its archaic social structure. Yet this difficult and paradoxical modernization runs up against problems that seem to be historically determined. In the film we ask: what images can capture this new country? And we chance a few answers, starting with the delirious fable-spinning of a nation drunk on its own progress. These are images and sounds that echo and, at the same time, collide with the grand founding narratives of the national mindset. Through these images we enter into conflict with the messianic vocation of a Brazil eternally pre-destined to be the country of the future.

Marcelo Pedroso has been working in film for the last ten years. His documentary The Pacific was screened at over 30 festivals and won a dozen prizes. The director’s short films have circulated widely in Brazil, earning awards at major events, such as the Short Film Festival and São Paulo International Film Festival. Pedroso is studying for a doctorate in film and administers lectures and workshops throughout Brazil.
