CWU's Jennifer Green Published in Hollywood Reporter

Jennifer Green, CWU lecturer in the Department of Communication is published in the The Hollywood Reporter LogoNovember 12 issue of The Hollywood Reporter. Below is an excerpt from Green's article, "How Jair Bolsonaro’s Election Could Reshape Brazil's Cultural Landscape."

Within a week after far-right candidate Jair Bolsonaro won the presidential election in Brazil on Oct. 28, concerns about the future of the country’s entertainment sector became a major talking point at the Rio De Janeiro International Film Festival, which ran Nov. 1-11.

Top among those concerns: the potential rolling back of government incentives and mechanisms that have helped grow the industry and, more broadly, of basic rights and freedoms in this diverse country.

The festival’s co-executive director, Ilda Santiago, says she didn't attend a single presentation of the 80 short and feature films playing at the fest where Bolsonaro’s election wasn’t a topic of discussion. “The festival is playing a major role in allowing producers, directors, all the different professionals to say we want to guarantee that from here on we go forward, not back,” she told The Hollywood Reporter.
