Description: Award-winning filmmaker Jorge W. Atalla (In Cane for Life/A Vida em Cana) brings to the screen SEQUESTRO (KIDNAPPING), a powerful Brazilian documentary chronicling the heroic efforts of the Anti Kidnapping Division of the Sao Paulo police department (Divisao Anti-Sequestro aka DAS) from 2005 until 2009, a time when kidnapping was booming business in Latin America's largest city. SEQUESTRO travels deep into the seedy world of organized abductions for the purposes of extortion, exploring the lives of those victimized while tagging along with investigators as they work around the clock, following clues and apprehending suspects in effort to locate victims before it's too late. SEQUESTRO, often set in some of the nastiest neighborhoods in the world, is a pioneering feat of filmmaking that captures for the first time on film, what it is like for police who risk life and limb busting into captive houses, in an attempt to find and free men, women, and children who have been violently separated from their families.
