Favela Rising

This gritty new documentary focuses on a city divided and a favela (Brazilian squatter settlement) united. Haunted by the murders of his family and many of his friends, Anderson Sá is a former drug trafficker who turns social revolutionary in Rio de Janeiro's most-feared slum. Through hip-hop music, the rhythms of the street and Afro-Brazilian dance, Sá rallies his community to counteract the violent oppression enforced by teenage drug armies and corrupt police. This one will move both your heart and your feet. 80 minutes
