96: SLUM SAFARI

Here’s one I made earlier

It recently occurred to me that 101 is quite a lot of films. So I hope you don’t think it is cheating to include one that I made a few years ago about Favela Tourism here in Rio for the online network Current TV.

Paulo Amendoim, the guide featured in the piece, has become a great friend of mine, and I made sure to include him when I worked as the local producer for the show No Reservations with Anthony Bourdain. It was funny to see, because in Rocinha, no one recognised Bourdain, but everyone recognised Amendoim!

101 é um monte de filmes. Então, vou incluir uma que fiz há alguns anos sobre turismo nas favelas aqui no Rio para a rede de TV on-line Current TV.

Paulo Amendoim, o guia no filme, é um grande amigo meu, e eu apresentou ele para o show americano No Reservations com Anthony Bourdain quando eu trabalhava de produtor de local. Foi engraçado ver, porque na Rocinha, ninguém reconheceu Bourdain, mas todos reconheceram Amendoim!
