Daylight of a favela

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.


Directors Statement:

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.
