Protege Group sponsors the feature film Alemão

The Protege Group is a strong supporter and promoter of Brazilian cinema and currently sponsors a film called Alemão. The feature film, written by Gabriel Martins and directed by José Eduardo Belmonte, is based on the police occupation operation of the Complexo do Alemão, a shantytown in Rio de Janeiro, in 2010. Alemão will be released on March 13 in movie theaters.

The film tells the story of five undercover police officers who infiltrate the shantytown community to roll out the invasion plan of the Alemão, but their identities and the covert operation are discovered by traffickers, who start a permanent quest to eliminate the police officers.

Completely cut off from the command network, the undercover agents take refuge in the basement of a shantytown pizzeria, are almost out of food and face a race against time. The drama tells the story of unknown heroes who went through one of the most dramatic episodes of the fight against trafficking and violence in Brazil.
Cauã Reymond, Antônio Fagundes, Caio Blat, Gabriel Braga Nunes, Otávio Muller, Milhem Cortaz, Mariana Nunes, Marcello Melo Jr., and Mc Smith are part of the cast, among others.
