"Invisible Citizens" is a documentary on those who are excluded in Rio de Janeiro, both socially and spatially. The main protagonists of the film are the members of a working-class family living in one of over 600 squatter settlements (favelas) in the city. Their daily life represents the drama of an invisible citizenry, today so widespread that it is perceived as »normal«. Over one-fifth of the city’s population, estimated at 2.2 million people, live in Rio de Janeiro’s favelas, caught between the violence of drug traffic and the police. Every day, the predominantly Afro-Brazilian population in the favelas struggles to overcome the widespread prejudice against the favelados and to improve their living conditions by their hard, honest work and close family ties.
