A summary of local and international actions that have taken place in response to the crisis of the Cinemateca Brasileira in São Paulo, a crisis further aggravated by similar political attacks, budget cuts, and laying off personnel at the CTav (Audiovisual Technical Center) in Rio de Janeiro. In both cases, the circumstances are aggravated by the dramatic impact of the Coronavirus in Brazil, and the erratic and repressive response of Jair Bolsonaro’s government. By presenting an analysis of some of the results and an update of recent events, I invite collective thinking for further action so that individuals, institutions, and associations keep lobbying in favor of these two important heritage institutions and our colleagues in Brazil
