A Força Da Rocinha

This is in Portuguese and sadly I couldn't find it posted with English subtitles. I suppose I could get on that... Anyway, this is a series about life in Rocinha. I like it as it doesn't seem to be the normal report about "suffering" and "poverty" but actually about life and the people who live there. Check it out!

By the way, there are about 6 or 7 parts on youtube. This is only the first one. 


  1. I live in Rocinha and love my life here..I never want leave here. Rocinha is my life! Rachel if you ever want to come for a visit, just contact me.


  2. Zé - I've been trying to get Rachel up there... She has a DJ connection. Still working on making that happen. Viva Rocinha!

    Go Rachel.

  3. ¡I think it's better don't to find subtitles because in that way we can learn more about the language, actually that's what I want to learn different languages.
