An act of racialized police brutality against attendees of a dance club near Brasília in 1986, an artist in a post-apocalyptic world, and a time-traveling detective who arrives in a modified shipping container on a mission to determine the causes of the inequity–these three elements make up Branco Sai, Preto Fica, a hybrid film using many genres and forms to interrogate the politics of Brazil. The tropes of dystopian science fiction are used to portray the real-life disparity between those who build the cities and those who get to live in them.
