A continuation of the semi-fictional work of the Special Police Operations Battalion of the Rio de Janeiro Military Police in the slums of Rio. An intense study of violence and corruption. Orfeu Negro and Tropa de Elite II offer two antipodal visions of life in the favela. Gary Dymski and Silvana De Paula will draw on their experience and research in Rio to address issues that are in front of Brazil today.
