  • Summary: Shot on location in Brazil this feature-length documentary profiles Yvonne Bezerra de Mello, an award-winning artist and human-rights activist who has gained international recognition for her work with street children in Rio. (Hyena Pictures)

  2. Negative: 0 out of 5
  1. It would be foolish for a middle-class do-gooder confronting homeless children on the streets of Rio de Janeiro to expect conventional morality to have any meaning to them at all. That's one of the blunt, no-nonsense observations of Yvonne Bezarra de Mello, the Brazilian human rights activist profiled in Monika Treut's hard-headed documentary.
  2. Reviewed by: Eddie Cockrell

    Universally embraceable subject matter, coupled with helmer's sterling rep as benevolent booster of humanistic pioneers.
  3. The best moments feature Uerê's children themselves.
  4. De Mello's dedication is inspiring enough to speak for itself.
