RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - Five actions in defense of the Cinemateca Brasileira took place across Brazil on Saturday afternoon, August 7. This day marks one year since the federal government took control of the institution, which had part of its material burned in a fire in one of its warehouses in São Paulo on May 29.
Protesters demanded the hiring of technical staff to preserve the Cinematheque's collection and the rapid selection of a new management company. The actions were organized by the Broad Front in Defense of Cinemateca Brasileira, composed of the Brazilian Association for the Preservation . . .
