Rio Breaks coming to the UK in June

By 16 May, 2011

Rio Breaks is a documentary about a surfing school in Rio de Janeiro. After a successful run in the US it will be coming to UK screens from June 3rd thanks to Mr Bongo Films.

We reviewed Rio Breaks when it first came out, saying that the film was actually about Fabio and Naama, the two stars of the documentary. It’s these two youngsters, living in over-crowded homes in Rio’s favelas, that give the film it’s heart and make this a documentary well worth watching.

Throughout this week we are going to be posting clips from Rio Breaks on the site, allowing you the chance to get a sneak peek before the official release on June 3rd, when it will be shown across many cinemas in the UK. See the official website for full details of screenings:

If watching this film makes you feel like you want to make a film in Rio de Janeiro, then you should probably check out Rio Film School, an organisation that will allow you exactly that opportunity. You can see one of their students productions, A Vida No Ritmo here – this is a film that has been shown at Cannes Film Festival this year.
