Critic Reviews for Favela Rising
A remarkable story of transformation and challenge on several levels, some completely unexpected.
Elevated by fantastic performance footage of Sa and his young protégés singing, dancing and rhythmically banging on cans, plastic bottles or anything else that can be fashioned into a drum -- and a cultural revolution.
A movie that is compelling and moving. It's also an artfully filmed and edited study of a real 'rhythm nation.'
All in all, the movement turned out to be a godsend for Rio natives, but the film is merely a pep rally.
