The year is 2013, and a large-scale student rebellion breaks out as Brazil’s economic and social crisis worsen. Hundreds of schools are occupied, and the streets are filled with students – ready to fight the injustice, which mainly affects the poor. Narrated by three students who all experienced the uprisings in different ways, Your Turn gives a unique insight into the modern history of Brazil. The documentary is a striking example of active youth who wishes to change society.
This is the third documentary by director Eliza Capai. It was well-received, winning, among others, the Amnesty International Film Award in 2019 at the Berlin International Film Festival.
