Lula, Son of Brazil cover


Based on the book by Denise Paraná, Lula, Son of Brazil is a richly produced, deeply moving
story of the early years of Brazil’s most beloved president, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva. Not to be construed as a film about a politician, or a president, this is more to the point an incredible story of perseverance, family, love, honor, resilience, heroism… a story so fantastic, that it could work as fiction.

Born into extreme poverty in 1945, Lula was guided by a strong mother (Gloria Pires in an
award-winning performance as Dona Lindu) who faced overwhelming obstacles to raise her
children with the drive and courage to live life without fear. Lindu, who was abandoned by her
husband just before Lula’s birth, never wavered from her strict commitment to seeing that her
kids live a better life. She raised eight children on her own, and with an unbridled tenacity, she saw to it that each child lived life to the fullest.
