The Brazilian population is composed by 53% of black people, 51% of women and 70% of peripherical population. Media production, on the other hand, happens mostly through the hands of white and downtown dwelling men, who have been denying the right of the majority to tell their own stories. What would happen in Brazil if we could exercize our democracy, also when it comes to media production?

In this talk, Amanda addresses the matters of having a voice; journalism and its reinvention; the traditional media's agenda; breaking paradigms; and taking 360º turns. That's right, 360º — because sometimes one must take a big turn only to end up in the same place, but with a completely new perspective. And this new perspective might be freedom and paramount, because it's when we realize that, after all, we're not alone.
