The favelas of Brazil are some of the world's poorest urban slums. While the Brazilian government addresses the favelas through force, artists and activists have found ways to creatively resist state and criminal violence while lifting up ordinary people. From César López, who turns guns into guitars, to rapper MV Bill, a child of the slums who rose to national fame, this documentary short spotlights the people who see art as a weapon for change.
