URBAN CONFLICT LIVING RESISTANCE INDIGENOUS LANGUAGE DISPERSION OF COMMUNITIES HISTORIA DO FUTURO IS A TALE OF EXTREME URBAN LONELINESS HISTORIA DO FUTURO IS A FILM ABOUT DIGNITY.

My artistic and political history is intertwined with the history of the great events for some personal reasons, related to a period lived in London. The London trilogy, consisting of two short films and a documentary feature film, has faced directly the advent of the Olympic Games and their impact on the population of the eastern part of the city. During the search, carried out with the instruments of the Anthropology Viewing and the analysis of the literature (thanks to a stint at SOAS, Bloomsbury) there was a meeting with Mike Wells, who led me to divert the attention from general sociological dynamics to the knowledge of a personal story, which It would be able to tell the impact of the Major Events, through the storytelling of his intimate trauma. The same thing happened in the new research, where the meeting with Urutau became a friendship, which led the author to return to Brazil to continue to tell the story of a man struggling with the urban conflicts of a city like Rio de Janeiro. If for Mike the main trauma was the loss of their home and for this the having to do with a semi-nomadic dimension of insecurity, from which it would be difficult to get out, in the case of Urutau, the personal struggle in defense of the indigenous rights, the defense of the spaces culture, the defense of the language as a tool of consciousness, and awareness (Freire), is the reason for the fight against the shock approval conveyed by the Major Events. The personal history and the encounter with the other become the heart from which to develop the narrative film, the universal themes that every man and every woman carries with them in their daily action.
