I know this is a fashion blog but I really think it is of great importance to let you know of a really great project my friend Alba Albanese is working on. Alba is from New York and she is a trained actress, producer, dancer and a million other things. She decided to give a video camera to two boys in Brazil and to let them show us their world through their eyes. When I hear “Brazil, I think of a paradise, I dream of sandy beaches and walking around in a bathing suit all day. It’s true, you can do all of that in Brazil and it is a beautiful place and I recommend you visit but there’s also another side to this magical place that you wont see in a brochure or in a commercial.
Most of us live pretty comfortable lives in comparison with the rest of the world. We are all so worried about our clothes, hair, rent, jobs and other things that aren’t really important in the grand scheme of things. There are people literally struggling to stay alive every single day.
In Albas words this is a summary of this documentary-
In RioRoach, We follow two boys in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in the first part of the Documentary Series entitled GlobalRoach.
They tell their stories and take us where cameras can’t go, they show us their world.
YOU WONT SEE THIS IN THE NEWS!
THIS IS NOT A FILM!
It’s the lives of real people; TOLD by THEM, SHOT by THEM.
Some images a graphic; several people in this documentary were murdered after we shot their stories. It’s the reason they were willing to let us in…a cry for help.
THEIR VOICES ARE NOT HEARD!!!!
HERE, today, some are gone but their VOICES REMAIN!!!!
Giving a VOICE to the VOICELESS!!!
