DP17: Favela Funk Finlandia

0 h 50 min  |  Documentary  |  Release Date: 29.1.2017

The legendary Brazilian musician and activist Marcelo Yuka invited the Finnish musicians Gracias, Paleface, Flam and the actor Joonas Saartamo to Rio de Janeiro. The goal was to take part in local cultural work, organize workshops for youth in housing projects, make a song and perform – all this in less than a week. The most important guideline: when you go into the favela, you have to make sure you give more than what you receive. The trip resulted in Favela Funk Finlândia, a compelling documentary that receives its world premiere in DocPoint – Helsinki Documentary Film Festival.
