Rocinha’s New Wave

Rocinha’s New Wave is a short documentary that tells the story of a group of surfers redefining Brazil’s largest favela. Directed by Sirus F. Gahan, with additional super8 footage by surfers of Rocinha, the documentary has premiered world wide; at both the surfer’s local beach in Rio, and the Embassy of Brazil in London. For its final release online, the documentary will be represented by National Geographic’s short film showcase later this year. The film will be introduced by Mikey Krzyzanowski of Goma Collective.
