- The Discarded
October 14, 2017
2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Run time: 18:44
Once home to dolphins, whales, and every manner of tropical flora and fauna, today it is considered a dead zone and wildlife sightings are extremely rare. Rampant unplanned growth, in the form of favelas, put extra pressure on the Bay and its ecological resources. Because these communities were not technically within the city’s purview, they never received traditional municipal services such as trash and sewerage. Today these locals, also known as Cariocas, represent one quarter of Rio’s population, a vital part of the local economy, and yet have been cast aside. They, and the Bay they know and love, are the discarded.
