A Brazilian Documentary on the impact of the future World Cup in the poor communities living in favelas in Rio de Janeiro. The government aim is the revamp and gentrification of the area, expelling the poor from the beautiful hills where the favelas stand and the selling of luxury homes for the rich. We started filming this documentary independently over one year ago with very little funding, which we obtained by throwing a party. The crew waived their salary and we received equipment free of charge. The filming crew is aiming at producing a longer and more detailed version.
