The Last World Cup we moved to Brazil to carry out an ambitious project that was minding our heads during the last two years.
(Iker) I lived in Brazil during three years and I could understand the requirements demanded by the country. Our Brazilian friends and some others reliable sources told us important information about the development of the sport event, with lot of darkness and countless scandals itself.
The trigger was the confederations cup with mass demonstrations and actions of the repressive government. It was the click that made us finally took the decision to travel to Brazil to capture images, information an impressions of a jaded and corrupted society. We started to investigate in late 2013 the triggered situations that occurred in the Confederations Cup where clashes between Brazilian citizens and police were happening day by day. The unhappiness of the Brazilian society was increasing and a bad atmosphere against the world cup aroused our fieldwork.
The first 4 months of 2014 was a period of research, interviewing attractive personalities and getting lots of information related with the incidents produced by the sporting event such as (tax evasion, militias in the favelas, deaths, disappearances....).
15 days before the world cup started, we moved over to interview our contacts before the event starts.
We shot for 35 days throughout the world cup happened in the main 4 cities that were hosting the event (Belo Horizonte, Porto Alegre, Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro).
The documentary tells us the reality and what happened since Brazil was selected as host of the world cup 2014 until the last football game that played their team. We will discover in 90 minutes, a network of corruption between FIFA and the Brazilian government, unfortunately the Brazilian society was the most damaged.
The feelings of a nation faced between reality (social and economic problems, institutional corruption. Etc.) And there, the dream of The Brazilian football team became the champion of the world cup.
Through various chapters of Brazilian personalities, we will discover the reality of the past seven years in just 90 minutes, where tax evasion, real estate speculation, displaced people, disappearances and deaths were part of a big business that was hide behind the biggest sport event of the world.
