“Happy Princes” was shot in one of Rio’s toughest favelas and follows a group of children, capturing their initiation into the art of theatre.
Oscar Wilde’s “Happy Prince,” the play they dream of performing, is the occasion for the unprecedented changes that theatre will bring to the way they see themselves, their ghetto, their city’s contradictions. A city that balances between blind violence and frantic fiestas while our young heroes of the documentary balance between their dream about theatre and the harsh reality. This is Panos Deligiannis’ first feature documentary and it’s derived from his personal ties to Brazil, Rio de Janeiro, the favela world, the dark and bright passion of Brazilian reality.
