Rio, 100 Degrees (Rio, 40 graus)

Shot over the course of two years, dos Santos' first feature follows the trajectories of multiple characters who live in Rio's favelas—a band of young peanut sellers, a couple in love, a hood out for revenge—as their lives intersect across the city over the course of a single Sunday. Dynamic compositions and powerful montage capture the striking contrasts of class and race that shape their lives.

100 min | In Portuguese with English Subtitles
