Screening & Director Q&A “O Caso do Homem Errado” (Case of the Wrong Man)
Film Screening and Q&A with Film Director, “O Caso do Homem Errado” (The Case of the Wrong Man) by Brazilian Director Camila de Moraes.
The documentary tells the story of the young black worker Júlio César de Melo Pinto, who was executed by the Police in the 1980s in Porto Alegre. The crime gained notoriety after the press released photos of Julius being put in the police car alive and arriving, 37 minutes later, shot dead in the hospital. The film features the testimony of Ronaldo Bernardi, the photographer who made the images that made the case known, the widow of the worker, Juçara Pinto, and respected names of the struggle for human rights and the black movement in Brazil. In addition to the case that gives title to the film, the production also discusses the deaths of black people provoked by the police. Amnesty International also refers to the genocide of black youth because of the large number of black youths murdered by security forces in the country.
