Carolina Maria de Jesus spent her life in a notorious favela(slum) in São Paolo. Her house was made of plywood, cans, and cardboard, and she supported her family by collecting and reselling paper. Her diary, documenting her difficult and violent daily life, was published as Quarto de Despejo and became a best seller in the 1960s. Meet five women in the Complexo da Maré slum in Rio de Janeiro, who draw parallels and contrasts between their experiences and Carolina’s. These women provide an invigorating depiction of life in the favela, subverting the usual themes of violence and male dominance.

Co-presented by the New York University Center for Media, Culture and History and the Consulate General of Brazil in New York
