Ep 27 - A Brazilian Filmmaker Completes His First Feature Film While the Brazilian President Tries To Close The Film Council - Meet Deo Cardoso and His Film "Cabeça de Nego"

Deo Cardoso is a Brazilian-American filmmaker completing his first feature film, "Cabeça de Nego", and starting the international film festival circuit.  He talks about the reality of living in Brazil as a filmmaker, getting his film financed by the Brazilian Film Council's first affirmative action grant to support minority filmmakers, the obstacles of telling a story about the educational reality of a corrupt and under-funded educational system, finishing his film under a new political regime that's trying to eliminate the Brazilian Film Council, and finding a World Premiere for his film to help it find a global audience.

Deo's film, "Cabeça de Nego" (English translation "A Brother's Mind"), tells the story of a young student, inspired by the example of the Black Panthers, decides to protests the racist and under funded school he attends.  The story was inspired by one of the schools in Deo's neighborhood and the kids he meet that were protesting the school's corruption.

This episode is special because Deo Cardoso is the first international filmmaker whose been on the podcasts.  Deo's film will start the film festival circuit in late 2019/early 2020 and we'll be doing more episodes with Deo as he brings this extremely special film to audiences around.
