Taxi Cultural – Short Doc

Curta Pernambuco showed a short documentary called Táxi Cultural (PT), by Mauro Lima, about the 8th edition of the Bienal da UNE, one of the largest student ‘festivals’ in Latin America, which happened in Recife and Olinda in January of 2013.

The event brings together Brazilian students from all over Brazil and introduces them, via a theme, to a particular local culture. In Táxi Cultural, it was Pernambucan culture and Recife (the parts of the city that aren’t included on the normal tourist maps). Apparently, more than 20 communities (that are low-income, as far as I can tell) were visited by more than 500 students. The documentary covers the first half of the 20 minute video below.
