THE GOLDEN MEN

 

Genre: Fiction
Duration: 120 min
Direction: Mauro Lima
Mariel Maryscote, a legendary figure in Brazil's recent history, was a police officer and the most famous leader of the Death Squad, that in the 1960s and 1970s would have executed thousands of people in the then Guanabara State. Mariel became famous for being the youngest, most inconsequential and perhaps the bloodiest of the elite police group "The Twelve Golden Men". A group of law enforcement agents, created by the secretary of security, appointed by the governor and baptized by the Rio press, with the populist and truculent mission of "cleaning up" the city. Like a heartthrob, he would shoot and kill thugs in the middle of the South Zone of Rio while flirting with the beauties of the time.
