Bluebird , was born from conversations with the farmers about their life and miserable working conditions and is based on a real story. The film addresses the demise of rural activity and livelihood caused by the liberalisation of the agricultural import market. It was shown and discussed with the farmers all over the country, creating an incident with the censorship board that led to the arrest of members of the group. The films made by this remarkable collective offered a blueprint for an independent cinema to emerge, deeply engaged with people's lives and concerns.
