86: ST GEORGE’S DAY

For the people of Rio, this is nothing new. But many outsiders are surprised to know how St George is revered here in Rio de Janeiro.

Here’s a little sketch I made of the São Jorge commemorations here in Rio. Many thanks to the Igreja São Gonçalo Garcia e São Jorge for letting me film and a special thanks to my friend Roberta who gave me the idea for this film.
