Film Title: Brazil, A Time to Build
Genre: Documentary
Year: 2018
Length: 64 mins
Descriptions:

South America's geographic giant is polarized due to seemingly endless corruption investigations and a less than optimistic economic recovery.

In an accessible and constructive way, twelve interviewees seek to bring a renewed type of debate about Brazil in the 21st century through broader themes such as corruption, racism and machismo, education, violence, economy, media and culture. Rather than presenting answers, the documentary aims to stimulate reflections on the structural challenges facing the country's reconstructive efforts.

Film Title: Carretera Cartonera
Genre: Documentary
Year: 2016
Length: 38 mins
Descriptions:

This road documentary travels across South America to understand Cartonera book production, finding citizens and cooperatives committed to using literary production as a means of fighting for social justice, economic equality, and a more sustainable world.

Cartonera publishers are proponents of a salvage economy. They handcraft their books out of recycled materials, often bought straight from Cartoneros, people who make their living by collecting cardboard and selling it to recycle plants. This method not only allows unknown authors to be published, but also supports environmental sustainability and the democratization of literature by involving the help of Cartoneros in the production process and making the books available to people at prices significantly lower than those of conventional publishing houses.
