PR8 The Common Action Of A Gear Part

Conception : Vicente de Sá

In this short documentary and in the approach we adopted for the Creative Commune project, we started from historical memory, from the dramatic moments which transformed the singular moment of a victim, into a common standard of the masses, in a period of repression, up to the concerns of present times.
Sociopolitical movements, to start, need leaders, victims, martyrs, but they also need common enemies. The masses generally need to identify with the former and demonize the latter.
No matter how harmful a repression, a dictatorship or an authoritarian leader is to the majority collective, only the birth of a standard, of a martyr, the charisma of a leader, will bring the collective, as an organic force, to react, to move.
