  • Morrinho: God Knows Everything but Is Not a Snitch

    2008. Brazil. Directed by Fábio Gavião, Markão Oliveira. Screenplay by Gavião. In the late 1990s, a group of kids in Rio’s favelas embarked on an ambitious and imaginative project in an attempt to stay out of trouble. Almost a decade later, in 2007, the result—an intricate scale model of their favela constructed of broken bricks and inhabited by hundreds of Lego figures—was featured in the Fifty-second Venice Biennale. The film captures over eight years of changes in their lives, their neighborhood, and their travels, creating a stirring glimpse of the transformative power of art. New York premiere. 85 min.
