This is the trailer for "The Sound of Democracy", an upcoming documentary filmed in Brazil and shot entirely on Canon DSLRs.
In a sleepy colonial town in Northeastern Brazil, three candidates are campaigning to unseat the mayor, banking on divine intervention, vote buying, the propagation of Marxist ideals or the latest reggae sound to help their campaigns.
Though the days of slavery are long gone, the town’s population remains impoverished and the municipality’s development is held back by a tradition of corruption and entrenched political interests.
While well-oiled campaign machines hold out the promise for a better future, one candidate takes on the political establishment and sets out in a lone effort to convince voters that things are not as they seem.
As religion, money and politics intersect during the campaign trail, the film reveals the challenges of democracy and the pitfalls of electoral politics in Brazil.
