Movie night: 5x Favela, Now By Ourselves

5x Favela is composed of five short films all written, directed, and acted by promising artists from the favelas of Brazil’s Rio. It is part of the project ImageNation: Celebrate Brazil.


The culmination of a years-long project to cultivate talented young filmmakers from the favelas (slums), 5x Favela’s well-crafted episodes offer a rare glimpse of the dynamic culture emerging from these communities, debunking the popular myth that favelas are merely hotbeds of drugs and violence.


Multiple Directors. 96 min. Brazil, 2010. Portuguese with English subtitles.


5x Favela includes:
Source of Income (Manaíra Carneiro, Wagner Novais)
Rice and Beans (Cacau Amaral, Rodrigo Felha)
Concert for Violin (Luciano Vidigal)
Let It Fly (Cadu Barcellos)
Let There Be Light (Luciana Bezerra)

      I used the "Imagenation" members link and everything worked fine. My contact at the box office said that if you go in person to the box office, you need to identify yourself as a member of this Meetup group. I think doing it online is probably easier. I purchased mine earlier and had no problem and my total was $21.50

    FYI guys: The Walter Reade Theater is actually on 65th Street between Broadway and Amsterdam (closer to Amsterdam, on the north side, up a flight of stairs that say ROSE).

    Also, there is a reception after the screening with food and drink!
