This five-episode film was created and developed entirely by young Rio de Janeiro favela residents who took part in introductory workshops and attended master classes with some of Brazil’s most experienced directors. The result is an omnibus comprising five independent narratives, both comic and tragic, which reflect the multifarious facets of daily life in the favela, and steer away from the stereotypes of crime and violence that generally apply to cinematic images of these communities. Portuguese with English subtitles. 103 min.
