The Movement [electronic resource]: Saving Children at Risk on the Streets of Rio de Janeiro

Journeyman Pictures (Firm)
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Children are more likely to die violently in Rio de Janeiro than in war zones like Afghanistan or Sierra Leone. The city is being torn apart by an unspoken civil war as drug lords battle each other and the police. Teachers like Yvonne Bezerro de Millo and policemen like Edvaldo Merrerra de Olivera try to protect the children by keeping them in school and guarding them on the streets. But the problems of the favelas (slums) have plagued Brazil for decades. This program directed by Sandra Beltrao makes it clear that more than just a few people will be needed to solve the nation's deep-rooted problems.
