Abstract:

This film revisits Geraldo Da Souza, a worker at Ford in Sao Paolo, Brazil. In 1999, he was among 2000 workers laid off from his factory during the "international financial crisis." Life filmed him then in "Geraldo-off line," trying to work out the connection between the financial crises in Asia, Russia and Brazil and attempting to understand the personal impact of globalization. This film looks at the effects of globalization over the past five years in Brazil through Geraldo's eyes, examining how institutions like the IMF and the World Bank have been dealing with a government which had in mind not to pay its external debt.
