Alumnus films Brazil: In the Shadow of the Stadiums
Marshall Corwin (1972, Mathematics) has filmed and produced a documentary for the BBC’s Panorama series, Brazil: In the Shadow of the Stadiums.
Mr Corwin’s documentary examines the darker side of Brazil: a country where a quarter of the population lives in extreme poverty and there is widespread anger at what’s perceived as the increasing divide between the rich and poor. The programme reveals the shame of a country where children as young as 12 sell their bodies for the price of a soft drink, where drug cartels control whole swathes of city centres, and where the poor are feeling more dispossessed than ever before.
You can view the documentary on the BBC iPlayer website.
