To learn more about the video letters project and get a behind the scenes look into the making of this film please visit: cantagalovideocarta.wordpress.com
This is a video letter produced by 11 youth from Cantaglo, a hillside favela located in Rio de Janeiro.
Youth produced this film through participating in a two month workshop taught by a group of human rights and media M.A. students from The New School University.
A video letter is similar to the concept of a postcard. It is a film produced by youth about their lives and their communities, and is later sent to youth from around the world to view and to respond with their own video letter.
Youth decide what aspects of their lives and community they want to document, investigate, or comment on.
