Synopsis:
The culmination of a years-long project to cultivate talented young filmmakers from the hillside favelas of Rio de Janeiro, 5X Favela’s five short films offer a rare glimpse of the vigorous culture emerging from these communities, exploding the popular myth that they are merely hotbeds of drugs and violence. Featuring rising-star directors Manaíra Carneiro, Wagner Novais, Rodrigo Felha, Cacau Amaral, Luciano Vidigal, Cadu Barcellos, and Luciana Bezerra.
