Intimate portraits of four teenagers from the streets of Sao Polo in Brazil.
Sao Paulo, Brasil, 2007. Flavio, 17 years old, five bullets in his body. Adriano, 14 years old, crack addict. Bruna, 13 years old, shot a policeman. Cynthia, 18 years old, mother of three children. Nothing changes in this country. Street children are being rejected by their families, ignored by society, murdered by the police; they are called the “invisibles”. Charity organisations are their last resort. That’s where we have set a camera. They chose to tell us their stories. Through auto portraits, they testify, intimately, alone facing the camera, the screen turned toward them. Thanks to this set up, we were able to instaure a trusting relationship and to collect unique words, free and sincere; “to the sole and unique condition that this film is never shown in Brasil.”
