Gringo Favelado

Kryszkiewicz, Alexander
Genre: 
Rio de Janeiro is known as The Marvellous City, but beyond the white sand beaches, sexy bodies and samba music Rio is on the brink of disaster.. As the Olympics loom on the horizon, Rio has been trying to tackle its chronic problems with violence by installing Pacifying Police Units inside the lawless favelas (slums), but the program produces controversial results. GRINGO FAVELADO takes a look under the skin of this stunning and enigmatic metropolis by following three British expats (locally called gringos) who are inspired by different favela communities where they now live.. Each favela has a unique character and during this documentary we’ll find out why, despite a sometimes alarming level of poverty and danger, the gringos are there to stay.
