There was an easy choice for our recommendation FAVELA ON BLAST

For 20 years, a subculture has emerged under society's radar. Favela On Blast tells the stories of sex, love, poverty and pride for Rio's marginalized people. They have their own language, style and heros. It's a music that's fast, heavy and violent like the city itself. This film is a flash of a few lives of charismatic people that relate to the funk music and a retelling of the subculture itself.

Funk superstars like Deize, Tigrona, Mr Catra, Duda Do Borell all make an appearance. And traficantes, funkieros, mothers and fathers, workers and students in Rio all have a part to play in funk culture. Its kinda of like the bass that ate rio mixes with Edward Scissorhands.

Other standouts look like... Paul Weller - Into Tomorrow, Johnny Cash's America, Woodstock: Now & Then, Soul Power, Beyond Ipamena - Brazilian Waves in Global Music & Oil City Confidential - The Dr. Feelgood Story + Plenty More!
