The documentary shows the perspective of the favela youth and aims to find the relation between the favela funk lyrics and their personal, daily (love) lives, dominated by a lawless subculture of drug gangs, violence and sex.
‘Inside the Mind of Favela Funk’ gives in insight in the current Brazilian underground music and its corresponding sexual values, but it also shows a search for faith, hope and love.
On this documentary I worked on the sound edit mostly. It was quite a challenge, Rio De Janeiro is very much alive and so are it’s inhabitants! Everything has to be louder than everything else.
This film (by Elise Roodeburg and Fleur Beemster) is currently featured on filmfestivals all over the world.
