too bad, i'm having fun
Extremely important. What an adventure! Might have to rewatch soon to get the full effect. It's a long, grueling film that takes the viewer to all the far reaches of the favela, exposing the issues faced by many different groups of people living there, and the varying avenues they all take to escape poverty and strife (or fall further into it).
It's very much a product of the early 2000's, so some editing cliches and audio snafus find their ways in. Still an insightful and engaging film nonetheless.
