This blog is created so that we can share our experiences with working on a video letter project with children and young adults from Complexo do Mare in Rio de Janeiro through the organization Luta Pela Paz. Luta Pela Paz means Fight for Peace and it is an organization located in one of the most troubled favelas in Rio. The objective of making a video letter is to establish a channel of communication from Complexo do Mare to the rest of the world, while leaving behind knowledge of film production. The project is made possible with the work of New School students from New York, PUC students from Rio de Janeiro and Luta Pela Paz. Welcome!
