Maputo- Ethnography of a divided city
2015 - CMI (Chr. Michelsen Institute)

A documentary directed by João Graça and Fábio Ribeiro, produced by ANIMA, about Maputo and the social divisions between the suburbs and the “city of concrete”. The documentary was developed with a participative approach, in which characters from selected neighbourhoods show us their vision of the contemporary Maputo.
