Firmeza Total: A Videotrip to Brazil


Video Stills from Firmeza Total via Nosey Little

Before the Dutch artists Dre Urhahn and Jeroen Koolhaas started developing the idea of creating community-driven art interventions in Brazil, they made a raw, powerful documentary about the vibrant hip-hop culture in some of the poorest areas of Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, slums known as favelas. Their documentary about the lives of young rappers in the Brazilian slums has been broadcast on Dutch and Brazilian television and is still successfully shown at international film and culture festivals.
