The increase in arms trafficking, the profit from drug trafficking, corruption, police violence, state indifference and the inaccessibility of consumer goods, explain why the youth who live in ghettos and suburbs of large Brazilian cities, are at greater risk of being victims of gun violence.
In Rio de Janeiro, more than half of the population approves of armed police intervention to fight drug trafficking, thinks that the bandits should die and ignores the average 15 gunshot deaths a day in Rio.
The film ESTRADA gives a name and a story to these anonymous deaths and pays them homage and respect.
The victims, fallen heroes or martyrs from the same city, are the children, the brothers, the husbands or wives so terribly and unfairly absent.
With this tragic reality, how can we deny that their pain is not also our own?
