5X FAVELAS: NOW BY OURSELVES (AGORA POR NÓS MESMOS) (Brazil, 2010, 103 min.)

Washington, D.C. Premiere The culmination of a years-long project to cultivate talented young filmmakers from the hillside favelas (slums) of Rio de Janeiro, 5X Favela’s five short episodes offer a rare glimpse of the vigorous culture emerging from these communities, exploding the popular myth that favelas are merely hotbeds of drugs and violence. In Portuguese with English subtitles. Directed by Manaíra Carneiro, Wagner Novais, Rodrigo Felha, Cacau Amaral, Luciano Vidigal, Cadu Barcellos and Luciana Bezerra.

Introduced by André Maciel, Head of the Educational Section, Embassy of Brazil.
