Educator who fought for full-time public school and who created universities. Anthropologist who studied the Brazilian tropical civilization and defended native-Brazilians. Writer of novels. Minister and Senator. Man of action in love with Brazil and Brazilians. Father of "Brazilian Socialism" and inventor of the Sambódromo... Darcy Ribeiro was not one, he was many.
The documentary Darcy Ribeiro, Vulcão de Ideias intends to give a dimension of the multiplicity of aspects present in the life and work of Darcy Ribeiro - life and work that are intertwined -, highlighting his important role as a thinker of Brazil in the twentieth century.
