Living in the Slums (2007)

Only available in United States

Rio de Janeiro is a city of six million inhabitants of which twenty percent live in slums, known as favelas. Many of these are dominated by drug dealers, but the vast majority of the inhabitants are honest, working people. This is the story of eight individuals from the favelas and how each has overcome hardship to get a good life.
