Four Days in September is a 1997 biographical feature film directed by Bruno Barreto about politician Fernando Gabeira. It is based on Gabeira's memoirs, "O Que E Isso Companheiro," which translates to "What Is This, Comrade?" The film is a political and historical thriller and documentary that takes place in 1960's Brazil. During that time, the Social Democratic Party, the president and the country's congress had been overthrown. The film takes place later in that decade when the country was consequently being run by a right-wing military junta supported by the country's elite. Fernando Gabeira (Pedro Cardoso), a journalist, decides to join a terrorist organization called the MR8 to attack the tyrannical military junta. At first, Gabeira attempts to hold up a bank, but he fails miserably; his close friend is hurt and arrested during the disastrous raid. Next, Gabeira decides to try and kidnap the American ambassador, Charles Elbrick (Alan Arkin). The rest is history, as depicted in this Brazilian documentary film.moreless
