Rocinha, 2003

Film, DV color
52 min.

A documentary film about Rocinha,
the daylight of brazil´s most notorious and populated favela. A jouney inside the slum through some of its most remarkable inhabitants. An alternative vision of their everyday fight against the stereotypes of poverty drugs and violence.

I wanted to show the other side
of a favela, the daytime, the real life, not the already stereotype image of a favela, which is drugs and crime, but focus on the creative working men, 98% of the real inhabitants.
