Maria Augusta Ramos: Exposing the System

Drought Maria Augusta Ramos

Film index A to Z

Seca

As a water truck chugs across northern Brazil’s arid Sertão region, Drought assembles a portrait of an impoverished land and its residents, who seem to have been sculpted by their harsh surroundings. Using long, ethnographic shots, the film exposes politicians’ empty promises, making it another fine example of Ramos’ political and human cinema. (BD)
