The "Creating4Change" production team has arrived in Rio de Janeiro to film graffiti artist Panmela Castro's work raising awareness about - and preventing - domestic violence in Brazil.
Graffiti is everywhere in this city, and much of it is protesting the FIFA World Cup, which will begin on June 12, 2014.
Our documentary team will be in Rio for the start of the cup, filming over 50 graffiti artists from around Brazil who are coming to create murals protesting violence against women in the country on the first day of the international football tournament.
The Hill Auditorium documentary "A SPACE FOR MUSIC, A SEAT FOR EVERYONE" directed and produced by Sophia Kruz for PBS' Detroit Public TV and the University of Michigan's UMS was nominated for "Best Historical Documentary" in the Michigan EMMY awards today!
A big thank you and congratulations to everyone who worked on the film, including:
The "Creating4Change" documentary team has been in Kolkata, India for 3 weeks filming dancer/sociologist and dance-activist Sohini Chakraborty as her organization works to rehabilitate survivors of sex trafficking throughout India. Check out these behind the scenes images from our shoot!
