Seniors: A Dogumentary

Paulistas

Welcome to the wasteland that is Paulistas, in the Brazilian savanna. No young people live in the region.

Paulistas, a rural region in the state of Goiás, is struggling to survive in the Brazilian savanna. Its young people have left in a rural exodus; since 2014, no young people live in the region.

Monoculture soy farming and the exploitation of water resources have left Paulistas’ countryside cracked. In July, it’s vacation time. Children return from cities to visit their parents, re-immersing themselves in life on the farm.

Inspired by the director’s own story and about the region where he grew up, the day-to-day lives of three brothers, Samuel, Vinícius, and Rafael (the director’s cousins) are unobtrusively observed.

The film world-premiered at Dok Leipzig, one of the world’s oldest documentary film festivals, where PAULISTAS was part of the Next Masters Competition.

Target: Philadelphia

In 1985, Philadelphia police dropped a military-grade explosive on a residential building to end a standoff with Black liberation group MOVE, setting a new standard for institutionalized violence and the dehumanization of Black bodies. 11 people, including 5 children were killed. The situation became so intense that then Philadelphia Mayor W. Wilson Goode Sr. ordered the C-4 bomb to be dropped. The resulting fire destroyed most of the homes and resulted in the numerous deaths. This is covered in the beginning of the film which then transforms in a history lesson about Black Nationalism.

TARGET: PHILADELPHIA explores the rise of police militarization within the parallel contexts of Black nationalism and the systemic disenfranchisement that incubates movements like Black Lives Matter. The veracity of American exceptionalism is examined from a targeted perspective.

“Target: Philadelphia is a compact 56-minute documentary that covers an inflammatory, violent and somewhat forgotten moment in American history. For strong Consideration” – T. Friedman, The Sound View.

This must-see documentary for any advocate of social justice comes as the second in a series by Sean Slater, the first of which released in 2019 entitled Target: St. Louis.
