the project

The aim of the project is to generate a discussion through a shameless invitation to enjoyment.

Taking opportunity of the mass phenomenon “Tropa de Elite” (movie – Elite Squad), the idea is to ask Rio’s citizens whether they think this type of entertainment goes with popcorn or with a deep thought about the reality of their city.

On the other hand, it is also a well planned and realized game: an irresistible parody for the classic and politically incorrect war recreation lovers. Instead of invading Moscow, conquer Africa or eliminate the white armies, how about invading the "Cidade de Deus" (City of God), conquer the “Baixada” (Lowlands) or eliminate the “Comando Vermelho"(Red Command)?

War in Rio is reflection and despicable entertainment.
