Selections from the Cinema Nosso Program. Presented by Luis Nascimento. (Brazil, 2006-2008)

This hugely successful media and film project has allowed disadvantaged young people the chance to tell their stories to the world. The Cinema Nosso program uses the tools of digital media to educate and empower young people in the favelas through training in media skills, introduction to the job market and a means of self-expression. Cinema Nosso (formerly 'Nós do Cinema') supports the formation of a local collaborative network. Cinema Nosso's work helps to ensure the re-integration of marginalized youth into society.
