    In the late 60's, Thomas Farkas imported equipment suitable for direct sound, and released a collection of documentaries called "Brasil Verdade" ("True Brazil"), after the Military Coup d' État in Brazil. His financial investment has never returned. The object of the segment "Viramundo" was to question why the Military Coup d' État in Brazil happened without any popular resistance or revolution or reaction of the society. He comes out to alienation mainly caused by the religion.

    "Viramundo" shows the saga of the northeastern migrants that arrive in São Paulo, beginning with a train arriving and ending with a train leaving São Paulo in a cycle repeated everyday. The magnificent song with lyric of José Carlos Capinam, music of Caetano Veloso and sang by Gilberto Gil (presently Minister of Culture of Brazil) foresees the scenes and gives a wonderful sonorous construction. There is a manipulative comparison between specialized and non-specialized workers, with the parallel opinion of an obnoxious, alienated and bigot qualified worker, and the other of a charismatic non-qualified worker. Then it shows some workers of the civil construction and from the industry. Later, it is presented the preachers and the "umbanda" (a Brazilian religion and sort of variation of voodooism and fetishism) and the alienation of their followers. The charity and the ambiguous opinion of Mr. Entrepreneur are also presented in this great documentary that exposes wounds in our society. My vote is nine.
