THERE IS A WAY

QUALITY PUBLIC EDUCATION FOR ALL

 

 

We can only dream of a promising future for Brazil if quality public education for all is our absolute priority. The only way to make this dream possible is with mine, yours, the participation of all of us.

 

We believe that all other problems in the country, such as politics, citizenship, democracy, health, security, culture, economy, corruption, intolerance, go through public education. Thus was born the #TemJeito movement, which will present, in a series of mini-documentaries filmed throughout Brazil, inspiring examples of schools that engage their communities. And from territories that embrace the mission of educating children and young people as a collective responsibility.

Our goal is to provoke a flood of new ideas to be put into practice right now!

We want to make you enthusiastic and help us build a comprehensive, inclusive and participatory project, capable of guaranteeing a better future for the country.

TEM JEITO is a 70-minute research documentary that addresses community participation in Brazilian public education. Inspiring in character, the film raises a series of vivid stories about the involvement of ordinary citizens with public education, one of the main challenges for the future of the country. And it presents practical examples of quality public education for all.

Based on the experience of Associação Nova Escola, among the hundreds of public schools throughout Brazil, the 20 that best represent the broad typology of ways of acting in the development of public education will be selected, with cases that include cultural, community, social actions. , sports, issues involving public safety, health, religion, among others.

The documentary score to be used is the journalistic material and the characters already discussed and portraits by the various actions of Nova Escola, which will serve as a starting point for Leonardo Brant, director of the film, and his team to dive into the local reality. there will be  discovered new characters, locations and situations that reveal what is not in the script.

The project includes, in addition to the film, a webseries in 21 episodes, one about each territory covered. The following narrative elements will account for creating the story about public participation in Brazilian education:

  • Performative interviews: narrative conductors for each territory, which explore local environments, scenarios and particularities, which tell the story of the participation of the various community agents involved.

  • People speak: series of testimonies by teachers, parents, students, community agents and local representatives to understand public opinion on the school-community relationship.

  • Specialists: academics, thinkers and personalities from the world of education assess the situation in the country and point out ways for greater participation of society in education.

  • Visual exploration of the territory: the director intends to create cinematographic essays from three complementary perspectives: that of the eagle, seen from above, with a broad and global view of the phenomenon; the feline, which presents the details of situations that can reveal the way of life, daily life and the peculiarities of that territory; and the snake, a loose camera, mixed with the characters and situations experienced by the community.

  • Geolocation: with the objective of locating the local experience, the film brings animations with satellite images, which they compose with an eagle's gaze, performed by drone.

  • Soundtrack: Brazilian musical diversity in rhythms, sounds and dramatic moods for each reality.

  • Voice over: the synthesis of the narrators' gaze on the observed reality is explained by concise texts by the director himself.
