With the election for president of Brazil coming up in October there seems to be some bad judgment calls by supporters on both sides. A recent film available on YouTube has just been launched by Brazilian filmmaker Fernando Grostein Andrade (“Breaking the Taboo”, “Vagabond Heart”, “Abe”). It’s a Carbon Neutral Production made in the arts district of NoHo, California.
Fernando is the brother of Luciano Huck. This commands some respect for his story which really stood out when his father died at the age of ten years old. Then he chose flowers over football to help him get over the tragic death of his father which led to bullying at school. His father had a king of porn magazine in Brazil according to Fernando, but had a heart attack at a young age and died.
It is a ninety minutes film that supports the truth about Jair Bolsonaro and what he really stands for as far-right wing, and more specifically about the way he is manipulating people who have taken a shine to his “down to earth” ways.
He fronts a person who transmits practical actions. Several leaders started out this way of winning common accord to pave their way into the limelight. Such leaders as Putin, and even Trump are good examples of heads who have got their own way by diligently using manipulating techniques to gather the crowds, and then use their popularism to rise to power and ultimately distort the truth with bullying tactics.
The film goes back to Bolsonaro’s early years, his fanaticism against indigenous people from the Amazon to joining the military to enact upon his scheme to create a bomb which was to get attention over what he considered insufficient army pay increases. He was arrested, and then later tried on charges for devising the plan to weaken the army's high command; a situation that led him to switch from a military career to politics. Now there is a new hymn by artists expressing their frustration which uses words accurately spoken by Bolsonaro.
The film dismisses Lula for corruption during his term as president. It clarifies the need for power and Bolsonaro’s maniacal ways to get attention before and during his term in office.

Down to earth (adj) = if you say that someone is down-to-earth, you approve of the fact that they concern themselves with practical things and actions, rather than with abstract theories. Sometimes though people seek approval, so showing down to earth tendencies could be a good ploy to gain respect and trust.
