Summary Three films explore the uplifting and liberating power of art in hostile and restrictive cultures. Favela rising is the story of Anderson Sa the leader of a transformative social movement in one of Rio de Janeiro's poorest and most violent slums (favelas). Anderson and his friends founded Grupo Cultural AfroReggae to offer through music and dance a creative, pride-filled, joyous alternative to the deadly drug life of the favelas. In Heavy metal drummer, a Moroccan Muslim teenager's passion for heavy metal music makes him an outcast, as he yearns for artistic freedom. Let them bark is a brief biography of Nepalese artist Ragini Upadhyaya, whose work contains hidden commentary on the totalitarian government of her country and on the difficulties faced by women in southeast Asia.
