Lost Youth, Doomed Society
26 August 2009 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

In Rio de Janeiro, along many days, the director Maria Ramos witnesses and films the judgment of several teenagers accused of stealing, trafficking and murdering. Underage youths are protected by the Brazilian laws and their faces can not be exposed; therefore, they are replaced by teenagers from poor communities.

"Juízo" is a Brazilian documentary that blends reality and fiction since the real young felons can not show their faces. This documentary should be technically reviewed by experienced sociologists; but in my common sense of an educated citizen, I see the wounds of a lost youth formed of hopeless poor teenagers and consequently a doomed society being exposed. What can we expect from children that grow in such environment, with bad intellectuality due to starvation in their earlier years, without education, profession or self-respect? But they are the less guilty in the whole story. Let's take the example of the judge that is responsible for their cases: is she talkative in every trial or only in these ones under the spot of a camera? She commits at least two mistakes for a woman in her position: when she suggests that the teenager should sell candies instead of robbing; and when she laughs of the shoe-shine boy that is raising honest money to support his wife and son, showing that we all may commit minor mistakes no matter who we are. I liked this human side of the judiciary and most of the speeches of this judge that has good intentions even in her flaws and a great tolerance permitting the shooting of her court. Congratulations to her attitude! This documentary mentions "CRIAM" ("Centro de Recurso Integrado de Atendimento ao Menor", meaning Center of Integrated Resource for Attendance to the Underage") and I have never heard anything about these institutions. I did not find any person that knows what a CRIAM is in my brief research. In 1982, the ethnologist, anthropologist, professor and writer Darcy Ribeiro was elected Vice-Governor of Rio de Janeiro after the Brazilian amnesty and he accumulated the position of Culture Secretary, developing a special program of education for my state. Unfortunately his project was only partially implemented in the 80's and then forgotten by the corrupted and greedy politicians that are the greatest responsible for this hopeless situation since they only recall the electors near the election and then despise them for self-benefit along their mandates. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Juízo" ("Judgment")
