The documentary ‘The Cost of Opportunity’ – generated from the experience of a multidisciplinary research project between Duke University and IM-UFRRJ – addresses the impact that the expansion of access to higher education is having in Baixada Fluminense.
This documentary traces the incredible campaign of Catholic-inspired Black movement activists in Rio de Janeiro’s urban periphery to expand education access to Brazil’s political minorities and change Brazilian society’s discussion of race in the process.
