Juliana Cidade Tiradentes from Urban Age and Vimeo.

A short documentary about life in a planned community in Sao Paolo city.  The commutes, infrastructure and built environment seem less than ideal, but the humanity percolates through.

From Urban Age:

Juliana lives in Cidade Tiradentes, the largest planned social housing development in Latin America. Winner of the first Miss Tiradentes competition, Juliana spends over five hours on public transport each day to get to her job in a pharmacy south of the city centre. Life in the extreme eastern periphery of the São Paulo Metropolitan Region is only beginning to improve, thanks to recent cultural initiatives aimed at creating a safe and inclusive community for the area’s nearly 200,000 residents.
