SXSW 2012: Watch Trailer For Doc "Bay of All Saints" (Poor Brazilians Living in Water Slums Over The Bay)

In the documentary competition this March at the SXSW Film Festival, Bay of All Saints, about impoverished Brazilians living in water slums and struggling to keep their homes against government efforts to reclaim the bay, is directed and phographed by Annie Eastman and produced by Davis Coombe and Diane Markrow.

Here’s the full synopsis:

In Bahia, Brazil, generations of impoverished families live in palafitas, shacks built on stilts over the ocean bay. When the government threatens to reclaim the bay in the name of ecological restoration, hundreds of families are about to lose their homes. BAY OF ALL SAINTS is a lyrical portrait of three single-mothers living in the water slums during this crisis. Their individual stories of poverty unfold through visits from Norato, their big-hearted refrigerator repairman, born and raised in the palafitas. As these women rise to fight for their future, they begin to see the bay in a whole new light.

Incredible how they made their homes Now where are they going to go? More innovation?


Bay of All Saints looks like a film I would like to see. Definitely not an environment I would have imagined exsisted. I like how the filming was done in the trailer. I'm curious to see the film.
