Gang Bang in a Favela

I was quite reluctant to make a video in a professional editing way (40 hours of uninterrupted editing for this one- I need to sleep). With my previous videos, I would like to show the reaction of the people with my “addicted to MDNA” unexpected behavior. However, when I went to Rio, I got a lot of nice, unexpected and addicted footage that I should make a nice complete video. Plus, Gang Bag doesn’t have a video yet (Madonna, I can be part of it, plz) – so in this way I felt free to create my story.

First of all, it was terrible to smoke (blargh!). I’m extremely allergic to cigarettes – if you see the video, you’ll find out that I don’t know even how to handle a cigarette. But Gang Bang without smoke of a bitch is not Gang Bang! I also got amazed with the cooperation of the people of the favela.

I lived in Rio between 2005 and 2006. At that time, I never had the courage to go to a favela – because it was too dangerous. Now this context has changed! I’ve decided to go to the 2 favelas (which are assembled together) in Ipanema and Copacabana: Canta Galo (Cock sings) and Pavão Pavãozinho (Peacock – Little Peacock). The favelas, or communities as the habitants call it, had a “pacification” process established by the government with the help of police and Brazilian army recently. Drugs and violence are NO LONGER synonyms (as you probably had seen on City of God movie) for those privileged places with one of the most beautiful panoramas in Rio de Janeiro.

When I went there I understood their meaning of community. It is cooperation! Everybody helped me: from the owner of the chickens, the man who held up Madonna’s poster, the children, the lady who danced with me, to the woman who lent me her broom.

Poverty is also a state of mind! I never saw so much happiness as I did in this day!
I just want to meet Madonna and be part of Gang Bang or Turn Up The Radio videos🙂
