“JUNHO” (June), a documentary of the June 2013 protests in Brazil, will be released in June 2014 in cinemas and on iTunes.
In the first feature length film produced by the Brazilian newspaper Folha de S. Paulo, the documentary shows how the protests against public transport fare rise in São Paulo in June 2013 achieved a national dimension and reached hundreds of cities across the country.
The protests brought over a million people to the streets and transformed into a large-scale revolt against corruption, the lack of public services and a criticism to the excessive expenditure on the World Cup.
Intellectuals, journalists and political leaders analyse the changes achieved by the protesters and ask the question: Will it be bigger tomorrow?
