This popular futuristic Netflix series from Brazil is notable for its emphasis on socio-political issues and complex characters rather than high-tech special effects. It explores controversial issues in Brazilian society, including race, violence, poverty, social disparities, corruption and authoritarian rule by an elite group. This lecture focuses on its evolving presentation of race, gender and resistance over the first two seasons. Presented in English.
