Uma Co-produção OCHRE África do Sul + MOSQUITO PROJECT Brasil
Diretores: Ernie Vosloo + Naor Elimelech

We follow South African presenter Phillip Malepa, a township boy from Soweto, during his one week immersion in Pavão-Pavãozinho and Cantagalo favela, on a mission to explore what life is like in this periphery of Rio de Janeiro, its culture, and what it holds in common with his reality back home. He will be hosted by Sidney Tartaruga, a renowned Cantagalo capoeira master, a cultural producer and a community leader.
After spending a week in Rio, it is now time for Phillip to host Sidney during his one week visit to Soweto, Johannesburg. It is now Sidney’s turn to experience a South African township, understand its contexts, celebrate its culture and history.

NO BORDERS is an experience exchange between two guys from well-known urban peripheries, in a quest to discover how their lives compare, how they differ and above all, to celebrate their unique characters!
TV and Multiplatform Series – 8 x 30’ episodes
