A Black family in Brazil tries to keep their dreams alive after the election of right-wing president Bolsonaro
A working-class Black family tries to keep their spirits up after the election of a right-wing president in Brazil’s official selection for the Oscar’s International Feature Award. As they figure out ways to cope and continue dreaming in the months that follow, the shifting political tides threaten to engulf them.
Each member of the family, including aspiring soccer player Deivinho and lesbian student Eunice, seeks to assert their independence and identity, all the while relying on each other more than ever before. Winner of Outfest’s Jury Prize for Best International Feature, MARS ONE is a searing indictment of Jair Bolsonaro and his supporters, and is a powerful story as personal as it is political.
