In 2012, 56,000 people were murdered in Brazil. Of these, 30,000 are young people between 15-29 years and of those, 77% are black. Amnesty International highlights these horrific statistics in an unnerving film, created by DM9Rio. It shows a young boy who goes about his day but keeps seeing ghostly figures with invisible bodies. They're all doing normal stuff, like playing basketball, skateboarding or hanging out in a club, but we only see them because of their clothes. As the film progresses, things turn violent and there's a chiling, inevitable denouement . Directed by Romulo Veiga via ParaRaio, the film features a special track by Brazilian rapper /songwriter Criolo.
