What does it mean to own a penthouse apartment in poverty-plagued Brazil?

HIGH-RISE (Um Lugar ao Sol) examines this topic in a hypnotic and revealing examination, blending interviews with nine penthouse residents, owners of enviable killer views of Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo and Recife, and a look from below, an overcrowded world that seems to be building on every square inch of land, with nowhere to go but up.

This feature-length documentary presents an analysis of the dominant Brazilian class through dialogue. Each resident opens up their home to reveal their thoughts on social inequality, politics, and the world that surrounds them, as well as discussing their intimate desires, fears, insecurities, prejudices and personal histories.

Through these interviews and a poetic visual and sound narrative, HIGH-RISE provides an evocative insight into the "verticalization" of the Brazilian cityscape, deepening our understanding of what drives people to live in penthouses.

HIGH-RISE is a film about height, status and power that questions the elite in a way never before shown in Brazilian cinema.
