Current affairs, Environment and Social affairs
What would you do if your backyard was burning, but the fire department never came? I’d put out the fire myself. And that’s what the Volunteer Brigade of São Jorge does every year, except the backyard in this case is the vast Chapada dos Veadeiros Goiás. In a direct cinema documentary, Alex Gomes, 42, leads volunteer firefighters in a dangerous fight against the destruction of nature caused by criminal forest fires.

100 years after the São Paulo Modern Art Week, the black painter brothers João and Arthur Timotheo da Costa return from the dead with a question: why were they forgotten by the modernist movement they helped to found? Trying to answer the question the brothers begin where they worked as teens, pass through the atelier where they improve their techniques and end up at the Psychiatric Hospital of Rio de Janeiro, where both died before 45 years old.
