リ オデジャネイロのスラムで、グラフィティーアーティ ストは、犯罪ではなく芸術で生計を立て、サンバのダ ンサーは、より良い生活をしようと何時間もリハーサ ルをし、メイドは、市の南側の裕福な家庭で、一週間 を通してせっせと働く。そして憲兵は最小限の予算で スラムの犯罪と戦う。社会的、経済的問題に直面しな ければならないにも関わらず、これらの人々はそれぞれ、自分自身の幸せを創り出そうと必死に頑張る。それは彼らの精神的な幸福と密接に絡み合った、生き残るための手段なのです。

Synopsis: In the favelas of Rio de Janeiro, graffiti artists make a living through art rather than crime; samba dancers rehearse for hours in order to have a better life; in-house-maids toil away during the week in wealthy homes of the city’s south side; and military police combat favela crime with minimal resources. Despite having to face social and economic problems, these individuals persevere by creating their own brand of happiness – a survival tool that is closely intertwined with their psychological wellbeing. What is their perception of happiness?
Is happiness a state of mind or a fleeting moment in time?

This documentary has premiered at international film festivals and will tour around the world with National Geographic this year.
