When Brazil's economic and social crisis deepened in the last decade, students protested and occupied hundreds of schools, demanding better public education and the end of austerity measures.
The feature documentary YOUR TURN depicts the Brazilian student movement from the protests of 2013 until the election of the new president, Jair Bolsonaro, in 2018.
Inspired by the collective voice of the movement itself, the documentary is narrated by three high school students, who represent central points of their struggle. The narrators' jostling for space and time exposes the movement's conflicts and demonstrates its complexity.
