The invisible voice of a male narrator that generates a performance of objectivity. The filmmakers’ and editors’ roles in selecting footage and arranging the video. The organization and categorization of the protests and the decision of what to narrate and when. These are all important things to consider when watching this video.
Still, this documentary offers a representation of the protests that is significantly different than those I have so far seen on any news source.
I found this piece originally when reading the Portuguese version of the article “VIDEO: Brazil’s Vinegar Revolt Captured in Independent Film ‘Vandalism,'” on Global Voices.
