True Stories: Dancing With the Devil

Just watched Dancing With the Devil, an excellent documentary filmed in the favelas of Rio through the eyes of gangs, the police and the religious and social leaders. By end of the film, one of the major cops and favela bosses is dead. Fascinating and disturbing especially how all sides consider themselves adroit. The police defending all Brazilians and themselves. The favelabosses as the providers of sustenance.

It’s the kind of journalism I would like to get involved in once I get my act together! Watch it.
