Lula, the Son of Brazil

2009 NR

Adapted from a biography by journalist Denise ParanĂ¡, this big-budget epic chronicles the formative years of Luiz InĂ¡cio Lula da Silva -- aka Lula -- who overcame formidable obstacles to become the president of Brazil in 2003. Lula and his six young siblings live in poverty and are sent to work early; an accident on the job drives the adult Lula (Rui Ricardo Diaz) into union activism, planting the seeds for a future in politics.
