A PLACE TO TAKE AWAY
(EM BUSCA DE UM LUGAR COMUM)
Director: Felippe Schultz Mussel
The images of slum-littered mountainsides have unfairly become Brazil’s chief representation. This documentary explores foreigners’ perverse fascination with this area of social class distress, enabling an industry, which co-opts these neglected neighborhoods as tourist attractions, like in the largest and most visited favela, Rocinha.
Screenings hosted by LPB
August 2, 2013 at 4pm (Spielberg Theatre)
August 3, 2013 at 9 pm (Lloyd E. Rigler Theatre)
