The film "Providência: 115 Years of Struggle" was produced by filmmaker Haimy Assefa in honor of Morro da Providência's 115th birthday coming up in October 2012. Providência was Brazil's first "favela." This film is one of several recent interventions on the hill aimed to call attention to the historic importance of Providência, given Rio de Janeiro's newly received status as a World Heritage Site. The film calls attention to current eviction threats faced by the community and two local photographers' responses.
