Frustrated: Black American Men in Brazil (DOCUMENTARY)

We have been granted access to the documentary Frustated that explores the reasons why many Black Men (and by extension others) travel to Brazil to meet women. Here is the video description provided by the website:

“Al Greeze decided to produce Frustrated after reading a September 2006 Essence Magazine article (Blame it On Rio) written by Professor William Jelani Cobb, which stated that African men were travelling to Brazil for sex vacations with Brazilian prostitutes and the adulation of the Brazilian women Greeze wanted to either confirm or deny and reveal the answers from the men themselves and find out if it is for love and companionship or just sex. The effect may have been suspected but what is the cause?

Through research, personal accounts and testimonies from the men who fall in love or date Brazilian women and the reaction and opinions of the women both in the U.S. and in Brazil, the film touches and unlocks some heartfelt emotions to these complex issues including the economic and educational divide between the sexes and the possibly unachievable roles each places on the other. Although the film exams the controversial topic of relationships outside of the African American race and the country, the film’s goal is to elicit open conversation and communication amongst men and women, strengthen the family dynamic and give both sides a platform to give an honest account.

Frustrated ask such questions as why are African American men finding love outside of their race, what do they feel is missing from African American woman and are African American women now in competition with Brazilian women as they are with other races…is there really a threat, or are the women saying good riddance we don’t need you or are they fighting for their men?”

    These men don’t look and sound frustrated to me. Who chose the name for this documentary? And why is made to sound like such a serious wrong that these men were in Rio simply for sex with hot looking women……duuuuhhh! I am sick and tired of hearing about hard working SINGLE men being criticized for their personal activities whatever they are. They are not cheating on their wives because they have none. That’s why they are SINGLE. Women here in America have their girls nite out with each other are there getaways with their lady friends. why do you not do documentaries on what these women are doing when they are away from their mens view. After hearing about and finally seeing this documentary, I am definitely looking into booking myself a trip down to that part of the world. I am 57year old black male, hardworking, 27 years employed with 3 more years to go then retirement. I have been divorced for 13 years, my 2 kids are both adults now, and I have tried to navigate the dating or mating game in this country. I have grown frustrated with the womens attitude as to what they really want from a man. So much so, that I had at one point seriously considered wanting to remarry. But not anymore. I will stay a single man until I leave this earth. This does not mean I don’t want female companionship. I love the females. A man without a woman is like this earth not having the sun by day and the moon by night. The earth would die (literally). Likewise so would men without women. Lookout “RIO”! Make room for another brother coming to your shores.
