VIDEO: The Conditioned. Raimundo Arruda Sobrinho's story

One of 10 stories celebrating Facebook's 10th anniversary is from São Paulo, Brazil

It is Raimundo Arruda Sobrinho's story. He lived as a homeless man for almost 35 years on a street corner in Alto de Pinheiros, São Paulo, sitting in the same place every day and becoming a well known local character due to the poetry he would incessantly write.

One day in 2011, a woman called Shalla Monteiro stopped to chat to Raimundo and they became friends. He told her of his dreams to publish a book and shared some of his poems with her. She was so touched she created a Facebook page to showcase his poetry. 

In the words of Facebook "neither could have expected what happened next"  Below is the film which covers his story and features a before and after video portrait of Raimundo.
