“The Heirs” is a one-hour documentary made in partnership with Social Center 6 de Maio and the inhabitants of an illegal neighborhood on the outskirts of Lisbon. This documentary’s main objective is to preserve the legacy of this community of emigrants from Cape Verde. But it has a more relevant objective: to demonstrate that we all share fundamental values of humanity and a country that we all feel like ours. Raising awareness for minorities, that are part of the social framework of international cities worldwide, is the mission of this documentary, a mission that is shared by Help Images and the Social Center 6 de Maio.
The documentary “Os Herdeiros do Bairro” won some awards. Follow this link for more information: >Awards
