Somebody to Love is an exeptional musical sequence. I also love how the many songs are shared by both 'good' and 'bad' characters, which is quite rare for a musical.
Ana Vaz's modernist sensibilities don't really help the undoubtedly important subject (the education and genocide of the Waimiri-Atroati). More than that, the resulting film actually contradicts the idea of reciprocity of education that is crucial to Paulo Freire's Pedagogy of the Oppressed. And this isn't just an unrelated idea that could maybe improve the film, it was explicitly mentioned there and was crucial to how the drawings that make up most of the film came to be. Verdict: a nice looking evocative piece that is a complete failure.
