Experience the lives and surroundings of a few São Paulo punks, the fierce Brazilian birthplace of this global culture of dissent. In a country with a well-known non-rock musical tradition, where corruption is cultural and violence is routine - Punk brought a cathartic expression more akin to urban realities. As a working class movement that started under the violent grip of Brazilian dictatorship, this is do-it-yourself at its most creative, and a celebratory means of resistance.
Viva Viva is also a portrait of São Paulo, the fierce birthplace of Brazilian punk. A city of high-rise buildings as far as the eyes can see, surrounded by shantytowns hours from the city center. Perhaps the impossible number of bodies, combined with the street art, and a tangled geography of little urban planning (or a lot of corruption), all make São Paulo a wild and mesmerizing place.
Viva Viva is chaos symphony and punk is the tune.
