A unique view on daily life in Brazil...
Many non-profit organizations use video and photography as a tool to conduct workshops in slums. Their goal is to improve the view youths have of themselves through the lenses of the camera. This way they observe themselves and the world they live in from different perspectives and are able to reflect on the role they have in it as an individual. The films or photos they make in those projects, are of very interesting quality and offer the spectator a unique view of daily life in a world where which normally isn’t easy to access for outsiders.
Worldpremière from the favela...
