“Funk is culture” is a short documentary on music politics in Rio de Janeiro. The “pacification” of Rio´s favelas via the takeover of police or militias causes deep ruptures in the social fabric of the communities. Baile funk culture is one of the major victims to this policy, with bailes in the favelas being shut down by police at will. The culture void created, leaving many funk workers job- and penniless and favela residents with no chance of communal celebrations has an unexpected side effect: Funkeiros are becoming more politicized in order to fight back and reclaim their former urban space.
