Event Thursday for Project Morrinho
11:08 am edt
Project Morrinho is a cultural project and art collective based out of a favela (squatter settlement) in Rio de Janeiro,
Brazil. Founded in 1997, the "Morrinho" (or "little hill") is a model favela made from bricks that a group
of teenage boys constructed within their home favela, as a way to busy themselves, and keep out of drug trade and violence
which pervaded the area. The model itself measures about 400 square meters and within this small world there are over a thousand
figurines; avatars in a role-playing game that follows the rules of urban life where "bandits" and "good guys"
alternate roles. The group has taken this role playing game, and turned it into hundreds of shorts films - using its unique
perspective to tell stories of favela life. Since 2001, Project Morrinho has show its short films and exhibited full scale
replica "Morrinhos" at art and cultural festivals throughout Europe and South America. This will be their first
time showing any of their work in the United States.
There will be two events - both of which will consist of screenings
of a series of Project Morrinho's short films, and a discussion panel and Q&A to follow.
The first will take
place on Thursday, September 20th, at 7pm at the Brazilian Endowment for the Arts: http://brazilianendowment.org/BEA-Filmes-de-Quinta--Thursday-Films.php
And the following week Project Morrinho will present at CUNY Graduate Center on Friday, September 28th, at 6pm (see attached
Project Morrinho will also be setting up meetings and touring the city looking for potential exhibition sites
and sponsors, in hopes to return to NYC to put on a full scale exhibition of the Morrinho.
