Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival, this acclaimed documentary thriller explores the cycles of violence that plague Brazil's upper and lower classes in fits of rampant corruption and violent kidnappings. To illustrate these cycles, the film utilizes highly personal stories that reflect the growing truth about Brazil's huge economic disparities: a frog farm connected to a corrupt politician and one of Brazil's most powerful men; a kidnapping victim who had both ears cut off before she was released; a wealthy plastic surgeon who pioneered the procedure to reconstruct the ears of kidnapping victims; and a kidnapper who has watched others like him escape the poorest parts of Brazil for wealthier Sao Paulo, where the affluent are terrorized by theft and murder. MANDA BALA (SEND A BULLET) explores the plethora of strange cottage industries cropping up in response to the violence, and interweaves these narratives for a compelling and complex portrait of what happens in a country when the rich and powerful steal from the poor—and then the poor steal the rich.
