  • Rafael Zen's rating of the film Favela Gay

    Felha shows a really hearty approach on gay favelas. It's almost time travelling through the middle class thought on "the gay-ness" back from the 90s: in brazilian shanty towns, gay awareness is still a flaming subject. Showing its characters with strength and dignity, Favela Gay makes you smile and think: there you go, sisters.
