Recognizing the ‘struggle’ of people worldwide and the influence that hip hop has on that struggle, we would like to make sure you are aware and have a chance to win a copy of a new DVD that hits the streets March 13th.
Favela Rising documents a man and a movement, a city divided and a favela (Brazilian squatter settlement) united. Haunted by the murders of his family and many of his friends, Anderson Sá is a former drug-trafficker who turns social revolutionary in Rio de Janeiro’s most feared slum. Through hip-hop music, the hip hop and rap rhythms of the street, and Afro-Brazilian dance he rallies his community to counteract the violent oppression enforced by teenage drug armies and sustained by corrupt police.
ThugLifeArmy.com and our media partner CRNLive.com are please to have this documentary as one of this months hip hop giveaways. Thanks to Genius Products, who supplied the DVD for giveaway; all you have to do is click HERE and send an email. Winners will be notified and will be asked for their mailing address at that time.This hip hop giveaway will end April 15th.
At the dawn of liberation, just as collective mobility is overcoming all odds and Anderson’s grassroots Afro Reggae movement is at the height of its success, a tragic accident threatens to silence the movement forever.
Directed by Matt Mochary and Jeff Zimbalist, Favela Rising received accolades at over 35 film festivals, earning the Best New Documentary Filmmaker Awards at the 2005 Tribeca Film Festival, the Audience Award at 2005 Leeds International Film Festival as well as the IDA Awards from the International Documentary Association in 2005.
Experience the music and dance that helped revolutionize Rio de Janeiro. The film chronicles the rise of the AfroReggae movement and showcases how music became a catalyst for grass-roots social change.
