Os Jovens / The Youth

“Solar, Meninos de Luz”

“Sun, Children of Light”

Solar is a school located in Cantagalo, a hillside Favela located within Ipanema, Rio de Janeiro.

The youth ranged in age from 14-18 years old. They dedicated themselves for two months to create a film which gives an inside perspective of their lives, and their community.

Their film touches  upon their joys in life as well as the challenges they  face such as violence, poverty, discrimination, and social exclusion.
