‘Inside the Mind of Favela Funk’ is a documentary about love and relationships in the world of the extremely popular ‘favela funk’: pornographic music from Rio de Janeiro’s deprived neighborhoods.
The documentary shows the perspective of the favela youth and aims to find the relation between the favela funk lyrics and their personal, daily (love) lives, dominated a lawless subculture of drug gangs, violence and sex.
‘Inside the Mind of Favela Funk’ gives in insight in the current Brazilian underground music and its corresponding sexual values, but it also shows a search for faith, hope and love.
