Dadá


The third short film produced by the partnership between producer Ailton Franco Jr. and filmmaker Eduardo Vaisman, as well as the second collaboration with scriptwriter Flávia Lins e Silva. The film is considered a classic of the new language of the Brazilian short film. Dadá features Jonathan Haagensen, a young actor from the group Nós do Morro, who was in the critical and public success City of God, by Fernando Meirelles. The film, a blend of documentary and fiction, is set in the hillside shantytown of Vidigal in Rio de Janeiro and focuses on the day-to-day of three youngsters who live there, presenting a side of Rio de Janeiro totally different from that which greets the tourist.
