I was shown this fantastic youtube video by Mrs Gordon the other day and used it with class on Tuesday. I think it's an excellent introduction to favelas. It shows the typical steep hillside location of many, illustrates the lack of space and the claustrophobia , the shadow of danger, the sheer volume of people who are literally living on top of each other, the mess, the squalor, the vibrancy , change and joy which make favelas such an intriguing and confusing place to study.
An excellent introduction to our 'City of Men' clip which I'll be using tomorrow
