Favela Rising DVD

Favela Rising is an explosive and inspirational documentary about Rio de Janeiro's most violent Favela (shantytown) and the revolutionary vision of a man who against the odds rises to enhance his community.

Haunted by the murders of his family and friends, Anderson Są is a former drug-trafficker who turns revolutionary in Rio de Janeiro's most feared slum. Through hip hop music, the rhythms of the street, and Afro-Brazilian dance he rallies his community to war against the violent oppression enforced by teenage drug armies and sustained by corrupt police.

Shot over a two-year period,
Favela Rising is an extraordinarily powerful and life affirming film that celebrates the strength of the human spirit in the face of human-rights violations, social injustice, and unexpected adversity.
Directed by: Jeff Zimalist & Matt Mochary
