VIDEO: São Paulo or finding beauty where you least expect it


PARQUE DO GATO by PEDRO BAYEUX via CROP THE BLOCK.

The guys at Crop the Block bring together local film makers, who explore cities around the world through creative video. This wonderful Short is about a place called Parque do Gato. 

Film maker Pedro Bayeux, describing the project:

"Parque do Gato was a slum years ago - now is a housing development and a public art gallery, in the neighborhood of Bom Retiro. During the last World Cup, I was looking for places to take photos and illustrate the context of São Paulo: every time that I went near to the "Parque do Gato", my curiosity was higher - and the desire to make a short film there, also. This place is not really easy to find. Can be dangerous, can be harshly realistic, but now, with the buildings all painted, is definitely a paradoxical touristic point."  

There are many more really cool short films at Crop the Bloc and the work of Pedro and Projeto Revivarte is absolutely worth following.
