The "Making of" of President Lula's Campaign
29 June 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In 2002, the Brazilian director João Moreira Salles followed with his crew the candidate Luís Inácio Lula da Silva in his campaign for President of Brazil. The collection of footages in meetings, debates, hotels, airplanes and other places with his political allies and friends and acquaintances have been edited in an interesting documentary about the behind scene life of Lula.

"Entreatos" is the "Making of" of President Lula's successful campaign for President of Brazil, elected with 61% of the valid vote – about 53 million votes. The phenomenon Lula, who has come from the working classes, is the first leftist President of Brazil. His party – PT, Partido dos Trabalhadores (meaning Workers Party) – was founded in 1980, and after twenty-two years of existence, three defeats and systematic opposition to Fernando Henrique Cardoso for eight years, has finally elected Lula. Watching this documentary in 2008, there is a testimony of some of the successes and failures of his promises while candidate: among his great achievements, the improvement of the Brazilian Economy and the lower classes; among the great deception, the lack of ethics of many of his political allies and friends, involved in scandals later. However, it is nice to see Lula as a flawed human being, with open heart and very sincere in some moments, telling funny stories about his past. My vote is six.
