The Other Side of the Postcard | O Outro Lado do Cartão-Postal
Production Credit: Sound Designer
The Favela Pacification Program was launched in 2008 to reduce crime and drug trafficking in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. In April 2015 however, police shot and killed 10-year old Eduardo in Complexo do Alemão, causing uproar in that community. Alemão and other pacified communities began to realise that the program had become the very thing it was designed to destroy.
Taking place in the build up to the 2016 Olympic Games, this is the other side of the postcard image of Rio that you have never seen before.
The Other Side of the Postcard is a documentary collaboration between Script 2 Screen Media and Maruti Blue-and UK and Brazilian Co-Production.
The film can be viewed on amazon.
