Carioca Landscape – View from the top of the hill

Long length documentary produced in 2013, after the beginning of the process of pacification (UPP) in the favelas in South Zone of Rio de Janeiro. The team went to the communities to view all the ups and downs of this social and economic transformation, with the focus on the gentrification.

The movie portrays the relation between old residents of the favela and the new visitors and consumers of this culture, including foreigners and people who live outside of the community. Sociologists, researchers and people involved in sociocultural movements complete the picture of this new format of interaction of the carioca communities of Vidigal, Rocinha, Morro dos Prazeres, Chapéu Mangueira, Santa Marta, Cantagalo, Pavão-Pavãozinho and Tavares Bastos.

The film participated in festivals such as FATU (Paraty), ATLANTIDOC (Uruguai) and FACA (Lisboa), and many others.
