After decades of lawlessness, order seems to have returned to the Hill of Pleasures. In one of Rio’s largest favelas, a Police Pacifying Unit has taken over control from organized crime. There is intensive patrolling, jurisdiction has been restored and for the first time inhabitants get to voice their complaints. But years of police brutality and corruption aren’t that easily forgotten.

In the film Hill of Pleasures (Morro dos Prazeres), director Maria Ramos shows the daily tensions between inhabitants and occupants. Six eyewitnesses talk about the obstacles on the road to reconciliation.
