FROM SÃO PAULO

"In the month of the World Cup the film "Junho (June)- The month that shook Brazil" will be release in cinemas and on iTunes.

In the first feature length film produced by the Brazilian newspaper Folha de S. Paulo, the documentary shows how the protests against public transport fare rise in São Paulo in June 2013 achieved a national dimension and reached hundreds of cities across the country.

The protests brought over a million people to the streets and transformed into a large-scale revolt against corruption, the lack of public services and a criticism to the excessive expenditure on the World Cup.

Intellectuals, journalists and political leaders analyse the changes achieved by the protesters and ask the question: Will it be bigger tomorrow?"
