A short film produced between September and October 1969, during the Brazilian military dictatorship. Its authorship remained anonymous for a long time and the precariousness of the production was due to its clandestinity. This guerrilla film is a collage of images from newspapers and broadcasts showing confrontations of young people and the police in several countries, contextualising the climax of the counterculture era.
