Maria Augusta Ramos: Exposing the System

Hill of Pleasures Maria Augusta Ramos

Film index A to Z

Morro dos prazeres

In 2011, a PPU (Police Pacification Unit) was deployed in one of the Rio de Janeiro favelas most ravaged by the drug trade. Once again dividing her attention between several protagonists of varying backgrounds (a local youth, police officers, a letter carrier), the filmmaker analyzes the immense challenges facing the political and legal authorities when they try to rein in a population left to its own devices for too long.
