Team Poland Comes to Rocinha
Some months back we had SA Wardega and his crew filming in Rocinha. Now another crew from Poland. It's great to see so much positive interest in our community.
Last week we had the opportunity to meet some interesting people from Poland. They are travelling through South America in a mini bus. They are documenting their travels and they are going to start a youtube channel.
They decided they wanted to have some special days in the favelas. We made a 2 days tour for them. The first day we focused on flying drones and filming the main street activity. The second day we focused on the alleyways and activities like playing pool and practicing Capoeira with the locals. The second day they also visited Vidigal favela to film the sun set and check out the community.
They also got the change to meet and have a few drinks with the locals.
Leandro Discreto a 3 on 3 basketball player from Rocinha who just signed a contract to play professional Basketball with a team in China.
The crew will be travelling for quite sometime but they have promised me that when they finish their travel documentary that they will share the link with me.
