ENOUGH WITH CATCALLING / CHEGA DE FIU FIU

Dirs. Fernanda FrazÃo and Amanda Kamancheck | Documentary | Brazil | 2018 | 73 min. | portuguese, with english subtitles

Discussion to follow with MVRHS teachers Juliana Germani and Corrine Kurtz, and students Brenna dos Santos, Laryssa Fernandes, and Ana Lara Souza

Inspired by blogger Juliana de Faria’s campaign of the same name, this film spotlights an issue many men still don’t bother to ponder. It exposes the culture of catcalls women endure daily in São Paulo, Brasília, and other parts of Brazil. Seeing through the eyes of three—Raquel, a black manicurist and nursing student; Teresa, a white history teacher; and Rosa, a trans woman artist—this film is a reflection of the strong movements challenging traditional patriarchal societies worldwide.
