Brazilian Culture in World War II Propaganda Movie: Brazil at War DVD (1943) Feature
Brazil at War is an interesting World War II video about Brazil joining the Allies in the fight for freedom. Brazil literally gave a division of men to the U.S. command to be trained and managed in combat. It was a successful relationship, by and large, and this film elaborates on how Brazil is a great country, second only to the U.S. in natural resources and manpower. The "cosmopolitan" Rio de Janeiro is praised as being a modern city like those in the America. The selectively progressive nature of this United State war propaganda film contrasts sharply with racist videos on America's WWII enemies. Of great historical value, Brazil at War is a fascinating glance at mid 20th century Brazil and America's stance towards them at the time.
