Now that most of the filming is finished we hope to have more time to dedicate to our website and other important issues.
In June a film crew arrived to work alongside Mundo Real and residents of Laboriaux on producing the documentary. The film crew came from The New School’s Graduate Program in International Affairs, located in the heart of Manhattan. The New School film crew provided technical skills that made the documentary possible. The six students from the New School who collaborated with Mundo Real on this project were in Rio for a course on Human Rights and Media, so this collaborative project turned out to be a good fit. Their understanding of how to fittingly use media in addressing human rights issues proved essential. Mundo Real and the residents of Laboriaux would like to thank; Dori Cohen, Kim-Jeena Jurriaans, Peter Keldorff, Kelin Long-Gaye, Mitch Oberstein and Erica Wendal. We would also like to thank the professor of the course Dr. Peter Lucas and two native Cariocas (residents of Rio de Janeiro) who helped in coordinating events and with translations; Teresa Labrunie and Andrea Schettini. An 8 minute promo of the documentary is already available on our website (and YouTube) and a longer version should be ready for release in September. We hope to have a related educational website dedicated to the issues of housing and similar human rights themes available soon.
