Directed by Diplo and Leandro HBL, Favela On Blast (2008, 75 min) is next in the TEN CITIES Screening Series.

For 20 years, a subculture has grown under society’s radar in the hills of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It is the culture surrounding “Funk Carioca”, a musical rhythm which mixes American electronic funk sounds of the 1980s with all the diverse influences of Brazilian music. “Funk Carioca” or “Baile Funk” is one of the most interesting musical movements in the world, but it comes from what is at times one of the most violent and poorest places in the world: the slums of Rio de Janeiro (favelas). This documentary tells stories of sex, love, poverty, and pride among Rio’s marginalized people. It’s a film that’s fast, heavy, and violent like the city itself.

The TEN CITIES Screening Series shows numerous feature films and documentaries, focusing on different aspects of club and sub-culture around the globe, and will continue at Goethe-Institut and other venues.
Interested individuals who wish to attend the screening may request invitation by writing to: moritz.kasper@nairobi.goethe.org
