Rio Breaks

"Gentle, touching and gorgeously lensed, Rio Breaks meshes a heartfelt hymn to surf-love with a harsh tale of slum survival. It's a beautifully bittersweet vision of growing pains on the rough side of rio, intimately unpeeling favela life's poverty, violence and angst while still shining with the fragile hopes and joys of childhood."
- Jonathan Crocker, Little White Lies
