Picture

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. In the heart of one of the 480 shanytowns surrounding Carioca city three characters, in the midst of the most destitute of people, take a chance at life : Mario the priest, Eunice the hooker, Israel the chairman of a comittee of inhabitants. They are caught up in a web of hardship, drug trafficking and police brutality, but also by the vitality of the popular Afro-Brazilian culture with its rites, its music and by carnival which constantly gives its beat and sweeps them along in its wake. "A fleur de terre" is a documentary full of humour and of an incredible density which, through the portraits of three very colourful personalities, allows us to penetrate into the life of these favelas, a mirror of Brazilian society.
