Directed by Fábio Barreto (whose film O Quatrilho was nominated for the Foreign Language Academy Award in 1996), and based on the homonym book of Denise Paraná, Lula, The Son of Brazil brings to the screen the trajectory of Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, from his birth, in 1945, until 1980, when he was a famous union leader. The date also marks the death of his mother Dona Lindu, someone deeply influential in his life and in his way of thinking.
