Storyline

The short film records one of the most unusual occupations of urban space in São Paulo: underneath the Alcântara Machado and Avanhandava viaducts, in the center, were installed a ring, a gym, a library, a kitchen and a leisure space, all done with recycled materials.   It's the Garrido-Boxe project, also known as Projeto Viver, conceived by ex-boxer and waste picker Nilson Garrido, who decided to set up the gym after helping a boy who had been beaten on the street.
