Sao Paulo Int'l Film Festival
Although Mostra won the lawsuit against the Federal Government (1984 was the last year of dictatorship), Mostra programming was suspended one week after the 8th edition had begun. Mostra was suspended for four days, enough to allow the censors from the Ministry of Justice, under Ibrahim Abi-Ackel, to see all of the films programmed for the festival. The dictator violence met with negative repercussions all over the world and a deadlock ensued for the next year, with Brazil in a process of re-democratization and an end to the cycle of military dictatorship.
