Brazil puts their Oscar® faith in the hands of Fabio Barreto

HollywoodNews.com: Brazil’s popular president, Luiz Inácioda “Lula” Silva leaves office at the end of the year after serving the maximum two terms. And now, with perfect timing comes a film about his early life. It’s Brazil’s official Oscar Foreign Language candidate “Lula, The Son of Brazil.”

The Brazilians are hoping that lightning strikes twice, as it was directed by Fabio Barreto who got an Oscar nomination 15 years ago for his “O Quatrilho.”

Lula, as he’s affectionately known, grew up in abject poverty before rising to the presidency of the country’s Steelworkers Union. He ran unsuccessfully for president of the nation three times before winning in 2010. Time Magazine named him one of the “100 most influential people in the world 2010.”
